With that being said, would you consider donating at least 1 box of masks? If you have gloves, thermometer probe covers, eye protection, gowns or gowns, these would be helpful too. Please email me, Julie Ramirez, your Lee County Medical Society Executive Director, at email@example.com with your needs and/or willingness to donate and we will coordinate with United Way for pick up.
