Vincennes University’s faculty and staff are assisting in the fight against COVID-19 by helping those who are on the front lines of the coronavirus battle.

The College of Health Sciences and Human Performance has donated hundreds of masks, including 420 N95 respirators, gowns, gloves, shoe covers, sterile cleaning products, and other supplies to medical professionals at Good Samaritan Hospital in Vincennes and Daviess Community Hospital in Washington.

Pharmacy Technology Chair Karen O’Connor says she is also sewing masks and donating them to pharmacy and grocery store employees.

Susan Brocksmith, Department Chair for VU’s Agribusiness and Cosmetology programs, is working with a group to make 250 masks that will go to Good Samaritan Hospital.
