Darien Scouts Are Making Face Shields for Healthcare Workers, and You Can, Too
Following a long and proud history of leading in times of crisis and need, Scouts in Darien are activating to help alleviate the personal protective equipment (PPE) shortage that many healthcare systems are facing with a face shield drive in partnership with the Andrew Shaw Memorial Trust. — an announcement from Darien Boy Scouting
“I’m proud of our Scouting families across Darien who are stepping up to support our hospitals and healthcare workers. Our Scouts have always stepped up to help the community in times of need,” said Grant Evans, Scoutmaster, Troop 53. “These face shields will help our healthcare workers by giving them critical protection from the COVID-19 virus, yet are simple to make. It is a fun project for the family to work on together, so let’s all join together and make masks.”
Evans shared that the Scouts were inspired after seeing an instructional video posted by Stamford doctor on YouTube.
