Masks in Every Community is a campaign and GoFundMe drive aimed at raising funds for the purchase and delivery of life-saving Personal Protective Equipment to Ontario’s northern, remote and Indigenous communities.
While VIO Volunteers is still reaching out to Indigenous leaders and groups — including NationTalk/IHToday.ca and the First Nation Health Managers Association — to assess the specific needs of each community, early projections place our goal at acquiring:
- 1.8 million N95 masks
- 7.2 million surgical masks
- 20,000 face shields
- 200,000 disposable gowns and Tyvek suits
- 1 million pairs of disposable full-seal non-latex gloves
- 450,000 bars of soap and bottles of hand sanitizer
