REDDING, Calif. - Across the country health care workers aren’t just fighting the coronavirus, they’re fighting a shortage of supplies.

Shasta County reached out to Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster or VOAD for help in getting that gear. They set up a donation drop off point at Bethel Church on College Drive in Redding.

Director of Global Response Carl Ladd stressed the importance of getting this critical gear to our health care workers on the front lines.

“They are on the frontlines of this thing and daily they're exposing themselves to give patients care,” said Ladd.

“The personal protective equipment is that only barrier that protects from getting sick and bringing back to their families.”

Ladd says they’ve gotten some N-95 masks but still need more as well as face shields, safety goggles, toilet paper, and paper towels just to name a few

The drive drop off is open Monday to Friday from 9 A.M. to 4 P.M
