LINCOLN UNIVERSITY, PA — The Lincoln University community rallied together to collect more than 50 cases of personal protective equipment for area healthcare workers fighting the coronavirus pandemic.
“Our science departments have significant supplies such as disposable gloves, masks, surgery gowns, shoe covers, surgery caps, and dust masks that will not be needed this semester,” said Dr. Anna Hull, associate professor and chair of the Biology Department.
Hull worked with other department members and Dr. Robert Langley, chair and professor Department of Chemistry & Physics, to inventory what supplies the biology, chemistry & physics, and engineering departments could donate.
“Dr. Langley and I agreed that we should do what we can to share these items with the community to alleviate any local or national shortage.”
With support from Lincoln President Brenda A. Allen and after confirming that essential personnel on campus had ample supplies, Hull joined other faculty, staff, and community volunteers in delivering the supplies to Chester County Hospital, part of Penn Medicine, located in West Chester on March 24.
“As we navigate the uncertainty of COVID-19, we should all be comforted knowing that our community takes care of one another in a time of crisis,” said Allen. “Lincoln University is a proud partner in the community-wide effort to provide gear that medical professionals need to protect themselves from COVID-19.”
