Right now the medical industry is being flooded with patients, while facing shortages on supplies. In response Disney has donated supplies.
Disney Parks has donated 150,000 rain ponchos to MedShare, to be sent to hospitals in need. It sounds like an odd donation but apparently nurses have found that they are a great way to protect clothing and freeing up gowns.
According to Charles Redding, Medshare CEO and President “The COVID-19 pandemic is unlike anything we’ve seen before. We have to find ways to pool our resources and work together to help the healthcare workers who are doing their very best to treat patients and contain COVID-19. We appreciate Disney partnering with us to support hospitals and healthcare workers on the frontlines.”
They also have donated 100,000 N95 masks to New York, California and Florida.
Of course this is a nice way to help out during the crisis, and I’m sure it helps their image as well.
