The email below was received today in our office from Ms. Evelyn Clark former Chamber manager in Qualicum Beach who is now the Executive Director in Qualicum for the Qualicum branch of Divisions BC. Evelyn also looks after the Port Alberni area and all of our Doctors and Health Providers. They make the following appeal:
"At this remarkable time, we are appealing to our area's healthcare and personal service providers to assist our family practitioners' urgent need for personal protective equipment. "
Physicians are running out of essential items such as:
-Surgical Masks, N95 Masks, masks with face shields
We are appealing to businesses in the community that may have stock of the above items and be willing to sell or donate it to us so that we may distribute these urgently needed supplies to family practitioners in Parksville, Qualicum Beach, and Port Alberni.
If you think you may have anything at all that might help in our shared efforts to fight this pandemic, please let me know. We are happy to pick up wherever is convenient. We are incredibly grateful for any help at all that we receive - thank you!
