Mike Shanahan assembling face shields for medical personnel
Friday April 3, 2020 was the start of the district wide project - assembling face shields for our medical workers at the frontline of fighting the Corona Virus pandemic.
Our very own Mike Shanahan and Ian Hicks (pictured above) took to the challenge on this first day and volunteered their time with other Rotarians in District 5320. According to Shanahan:
"Each protective shield takes about 2-3 minutes to assemble but the work is easy to do. Everyone working on the project was wearing protective gear and we each had a work station several feet apart. The goal is to assemble 25,000 shields to deliver to the hospitals on Monday. Each of the 5 assembly centers in OC are hoping to build 5,000 face shields each."
