CORNING, Calif. - A group of women are working to make sure our health care workers get the supplies they need.

Health care workers at the Rolling Hills Clinic feared they wouldn't have enough PPE supplies to treat patients.

“They were really concerned that we were going to have a surge of the virus hitting up here locally and they wouldn’t have the protective equipment to treat all the patients,” said Jeannie Cloud, Director of Human Resources at Rolling Casino.

To ease their worries, the ladies stepped up. They spent hours creating PPE gear for workers at clinic and used elastic hairbands and pipe cleaners to create masks and face shields.

“The first week we spent six hours a day, but now it’s about four or five because it’s really labor-intensive leaning over those machines,” said Cindy Rimer, one of the seamstresses. “We volunteer our time to sew them up.”

With the homemade PPE equipment, workers will be able to help treat patients.

“If we could provide them with these items then we would have a back stock,” said Cloud.

The Rolling Hills Clinic has two locations, one in Red Bluff and another in Corning.
