MASKS IN EVERY COMMUNITY

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
