Personal gear to protect our students, volunteers and staff is of course a priority this year. We’ve loaded up on cleaning supplies and hand sanitizer, some of which we’ve had generously donated by you, our supporters!
A special thank you goes to The Cap Shield who is giving back by donating 10 face shields for every 100 they sell online. Urban Stable was the recipient of some of these face shields that will help keep our students, volunteers and staff safe. Thank you Cap Shield for this gift!
Another special thank you goes to the Manitoba Horse Council, Greenhawk, Anne Miner, Janet Miner, Anna Savard, John Savard and Geri Sweet who worked together to purchase supplies and hand make enough non-medical face masks for our students to wear while at Urban Stable, ensuring we can help keep everyone at our site safe and follow best practices at all times.
And of course a big thank you to Face Masks for Manitoba who are helping Manitobans access non-medical face masks by organizing talented sewers in our region to make masks for others. We received a donation of face masks from this group as well and we are so glad there are so many caring and helpful people in our community.
All this added safety equipment comes with a cost which can become overwhelming especially in an already challenging time, but thanks to you, our generous community, some of the added costs of this equipment have been taken care of for us! Thank you!
