DuBois School District donates masks to Penn Highlands

DuBois, PA – The DuBois Area School District used part of their emergency preparedness stockpile to donate more than 6,000 face masks to Penn Highlands Healthcare recently.

The donations were much appreciated and include N-95 respirator masks, surgical masks, yellow masks, and children’s masks.

The hospitals are trying to stock up on supplies now so they are prepared if they begin to experience a shortage. If you have extra medical supplies, you are encouraged to donate them.
