Help protect Oxford County’s healthcare workers. Donate supplies today
Oxford’s front-line healthcare workers are in need of personal protective equipment
NEWS FROM OXFORD COUNTY'S HEALTHCARE PARTNERS
Oxford County’s front-line healthcare workers need the community’s help. Healthcare workers need personal protective equipment (PPE) so they can continue to care for and protect our community members during COVID-19.
As part of a newly developed, County-wide response strategy to tackle the supply shortage, Oxford County’s healthcare partners are working together to collect and distribute donations of personal protective equipment (PPE) among all healthcare partners working in the Oxford County community.
