Rep. Gallagher Partners with Brown County Health on PPE Drive

April 02, 2020

Congressman Mike Gallagher (R-WI) announced a joint effort with the Brown County Health Department March 30 to collect unused personal protective equipment (PPE) for area health care providers. The drive has already yielded a number of donations, including nearly 28,000 gloves donated the first day.
 
Health care workers and first responders across Northeast Wisconsin work around the clock to keep us safe, and we should do all we can to ensure they’re protected from the coronavirus,” Rep. Gallagher said. “I’m proud to team up with the Brown County Health Department to give Northeast Wisconsinites an easy drop-off location that ensures their donations will go directly to the local heroes on the frontlines of this fight.”
 
Individuals interested in donating PPE have been asked to e-mail WI08donations@gmail.com or call Rep. Gallagher’s office at (920) 301-4500 to schedule a drop-off time and location with staff. Donations of all sizes will be accepted at pre-determined times.
