CARLETON PLACE – Cavanagh Construction is helping keep the frontline healthcare team in Lanark County safe in the battle to beat the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The donations just keep coming – and we are very grateful,” communications lead Jane Adams released in a statement today (April 7). “Over the past few weeks, our local communities have stepped up with donations of personal protective equipment (PPE) and other offers of support for the frontline workers at Almonte General Hospital, Fairview Manor, Lanark County Paramedic Service and Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital.”
Yesterday, Cavanagh Construction donated 900 N95 masks to the Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital.
“We had the masks in stock, and we know our local health care providers need them,” Lori Cavanagh said. “We were happy to share our supply with local nursing homes as well as the hospital. They are the true heroes.”
“Thank you to Cavanagh and everyone who has made a donation,” president and CEO Mary Wilson Trider said. “Our communities have always been so supportive of health care close to home, and now that support is more important than ever.”
To support future donations, both hospitals have now set up COVID-19 donation pages on their websites. The pages provide details on donations of PPE, home-made items, as well as gifts of food for staff and physicians.
