CANTON — Superintendent Jill Rossetti announces that Blue Hills Regional Technical School donated a variety of health and medical supplies to area public safety and health agencies today.
Members of the school’s administrative team decided on Friday, March 20 to gather a large quantity of gloves, masks, safety goggles, hand sanitizer and other supplies to donate to those in need.
The items were divided up equally among many local agencies and delivered on Saturday, March 21. Those receiving donations include the Canton Police Department, the Canton Fire Department, Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton, Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital in Milton and the Milton Police Department.
Most of the supplies came from the school’s Metal Fabrication, Health Assisting and Licensed Practical Nurse departments.
“Our administrative team, leadership team, school committee, teachers and parents really stepped up to provide these important medical supplies to those who need them most,” Superintendent Rossetti said. “This has been a difficult time for all of us, but it’s great to see our school community come together and donate their time and resources to such a worthy cause.”
Blue Hills Regional Technical School also wishes to encourage students and staff to follow recommended preventative steps from the DPH relating to the spread of the COVID-19 virus:
- Practice good hand hygiene. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds including under your fingernails. Alcohol-based hand sanitizer (at least 60% alcohol content) can be used when soap and water are not available.
- Keep your hands away from your face.
- Cover your nose and mouth when sneezing and coughing with a tissue and discard it immediately. Cough into the sleeve over your elbow instead of your hand. Wash your hands often when coughing and sneezing.
- Stay away from people who are sick and stay home when you are sick.
