The global car community is racing to fight ‘The Virus’. But stories about Formula 1 teams in the UK re-purposing their factories to build ventilators seems half a world away. What can be done at home, here in Toronto, to help?

Race down to Michael Garron Hospital (formerly Toronto East General Hospital) to donate personal protection equipment such as face masks, protective gloves and goggles. Bring your supplies to the hospital before Friday March 27th, 2020, as these PPE supplies are urgently needed to fight “The Virus”. Businesses like nail salons, dental clinics, veterinary clinics or even drywallers and construction companies might have personal protective equipment on their shelves.

Not an elaborate or exciting challenge … but fundamental to fighting ‘The Virus’. A website for the supply drive has been started with the vision of other hospitals joining on. Announcements have been made about getting factories to produce needed equipment, but donations are needed to bridge the gap between now and then.
