“We wanted to provide our First Responders and Healthcare professionals with tools that they need to protect themselves during the COVID-19 outbreak. We know that CRESA will get these supplies to those that need them in our community,” said Evergreen Public Schools Superintendent Mike Merlino.

The district collected the medical supplies from multiple schools and buildings. The masks, shields and glasses came from our schools’ “Shelter in Place” kits, health rooms,  medical and dental programs and other College Career & Technical Education (CCTE) programs.
