Summary: 4000 N95 masks to first responders and hospital staff in Downers Grove, IL
Past President Lisa Rasin approached the Village of Downers Grove to inquire about what they needed most to help with COVID-19. Cleaning supplies and KN95 masks what was the answer we received. Our club reached out to the community seeking donations of cleaning supplies. Kent Ebersold, another past president was able to secure 4000 KN95 masks from a vendor in St Louis, MO. The Rotary Club of Downers Grove and the Village of Downers Grove are going to split the cost and divide the amount of KN95 masks.Two thousand masks will be distributed to Good Samaritan Hospital, a Level One Trauma Center and the remaining balance will be given to the first responders of the Village of Downers Grove. The individual cost of each KN95 mask is $2.18 each mask or $8720 plus $77.38 freight for a grand total of $8797.38 The Village of Downers Grove will be contributing $4397.69 toward the project.
