One Calgary group is hoping to keep front-line workers safe as COVID-19 continues to spread across the province.

The Helping Alberta initiative was born from the looming possibility of equipment shortages in Alberta, such as masks and gloves, due to the pandemic, co-founder Melissa Lamothe said.

“Alberta has done a really good job of making sure there’s a stock-pile in the province,” Lamothe said during an interview with 770 CHQR on Thursday.
