Calgary group raises $41K for personal protective equipment for Alberta health-care workers

CALGARY — Canadian health-care professionals are on the front lines in the battle against COVID-19 and some worry the supply of personal protective equipment (PPE) could run short.

But a Calgary group has now raised more than $41,000 to order masks for health-care workers and people who care for at-risk populations.

On Thursday, the group ordered 30,000 N95 and surgical masks with money raised through GoFundMe. The group’s website has more information on what needs to be donated and how people can volunteer to help.
