Project 180, a company located in Downtown Los Angeles, that aims to turn lives around through comprehensive diversion and re-entry programs for Angelenos involved in the criminal justice system. Project 180 also provides patients with a safe place to hang out and socialize with others, helping them walk out of any mental problems with trust, honesty, and care. After communicating with their head of the programs, Emily Lundberg, they had asked us to help them with medical supplies for their staff. This morning, our team went to their base and donated 50 masks and other medical supplies to their company.
Our team went to the Kumon Math and Reading Center of La Canada and donated a total of 50 masks to all their staff. Kumon is an educational network created by Toru Kumon which uses his Kumon Method to teach mathematics and reading for young students. All along, the center has been making dedications and contributions to many students, helping them overcome the struggles and toughness while still creating an awesome environment of learning. So we want to return the love as an appreciation for what they have done to help our community.
Right now, our healthcare workers are on the frontlines of battling the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) that’s spreading rapidly throughout our city, state, and nation. They are putting themselves in the path of this virus in this unprecedented crisis. Our doctors, nurses, technicians, transporters, pharmacists and everyone are caring for our most vulnerable populations. After communicating between our team and USC Verdugo Hills Hospital, we have successfully donated our supplies to the hospital: 120 masks, 3 bottles of disinfectant sprays, 2 boxes of wet wipes, 3 boxes of disinfectant wipes, and 1875 cotton swabs. In the following period, our team and the staff of USC Verdugo Hills Hospital hope everyone can continue to support and spread awareness.
