Community Supply Drive for Healthcare Workers
UPDATE: Community Supply Drive in Pueblo for Healthcare Workers to Continue Friday, March 27 as Scheduled
The Community Supply Drive for Healthcare Workers will operate as scheduled from 1 – 5p.m. The event is classified as a critical service and will run in accordance with Governor Polis’ Stay at Home Order as the drive is collecting essential items for healthcare workers.
Pueblo Department of Public Health & Environment (PDPHE) personnel will be on-site to ensure proper additional safety precautions, including limited person to person interaction. Those intending to donate are encouraged to remain in their vehicles when entering the collection area and follow all instructions given by event organizers.
The drive is being held by United Way of Pueblo County and CSU-Pueblo Student Health Services, in partnership and coordination with Colorado State Representative Daneya Esgar, Colorado State Senate President Senator Leroy Garcia, the Pueblo County Emergency Operations Center, and Pueblo Department of Public Health & Environment.
“Pueblo has always been united, and we will get through this together,” stated Representative Esgar. “Now our friends and neighbors on the front lines need our help. Can we count on you to help them, from the safety of your car?”
“This pandemic has put an incredible amount of strain on the brave men and women who serve as medical professionals in our community. They are working around-the-clock to keep us safe and healthy, but now their supplies are running low, making their jobs that much more difficult. So, let’s come together to support our neighbors like Pueblo always has,” remarked Senate President Garcia.
