TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Tallahassee Community College has stepped up during the time of crises by donating medical gear to support healthcare workers in the Big Bend area.

The College says they received a request for help in the provision of personal protective equipment from Tallahassee Memorial Hospital and Leon County Emergency Medical Services.

The TCC Ghazvini Center for Healthcare Education conducted an inventory of their supplies and was able to share what they had with first responders.

As a result, TCC donated more than 1,000 masks, gowns, gloves, shoe covers, and bouffant caps.

“These are our community health-care partners who collaborate with us in the provision of clinical learning experiences for our students,” said Dr. Stephanie Solomon, Executive Director and Dean of Healthcare Professions, Ghazvini Center for Healthcare Education. “These are the employers who employ our graduates. We want to contribute to their safety and well-being on the job as well as the health of our community.”
