You Can Volunteer to Help Make 33,000 Face Shields in FV

Fountain Valley and Rotary District 5320 are holding the volunteer event Rotary Project Shield to make 30,000 masks for healthcare workers during Covid-19.

The urgent response project Volunteers will meet April 17, 18 and 19 at Fountain Valley Freedom Hall in Mile Square Park. The volunteer slots are for three hours each with a morning and afternoon option.

Project Shield – 30,000 Masks

Project Shield was an Emergency Response project from Rotary District 5320. The project is intended to replicate in other rotary districts and fulfill community and front-line medical requests for PPE.

PacMin in Fullerton is providing the face shield supplies at $2.00 per shield. The shield supplies can be purchased in lots of 200 at $45 per box for shipping.

According to the Rotary Project Shield website, “The CEO of St. Jude’s in Fullerton connected us with a local provider of medically approved face shields who is willing to provide the kits to assemble at a cost of  $2 each that we can rapidly distribute to hospitals, senior facilities and others at great risk.  They will also be branded with the Rotary logo!”

Rotary Project Shield is aiming to produce 30,000 masks to supply to healthcare workers. The masks will be branded with the rotary logo and distributed in Orange County.
