The shortage of medical equipment, including face masks, is a global problem. Local hospitals and physicians have been reaching out to the community for help. Today, they got some.

Habitat for Humanity Buffalo has donated 20,000 face masks to Kaleida Health. They posted photos on Facebook, along with photos.

“It’s more important than ever to be a good neighbor. Today we donated 20,000 face masks (typically used for demo projects) to our friends at Kaleida Health. Please join us in supporting our community – show some love to all the folks working on the front lines, shop at a local business, or donate to help your favorite non-profit respond to this crisis. We’re all in this together.”
