Congressman Lou Correa and Santa Ana City Councillman Vince Sarmiento showed up at the event to help pass out face shields and meals.
The Santa Ana Rotary Club undertook this effort when they found out that local first responders lacked sufficient face masks as they contend with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The members of the various O.C. Rotary Clubs in District 5320 spent three weeks at five different locations actually making the face shields by hand. In total they made more than 70,000 face shields and masks to give away to our local medical professionals at various local hospitals. Click here to learn how you can support this ongoing effort.
Durante 3 semanas estuvimos trabajando en 5 diferentes lugares para hacer las face shields en todo el distrito 5320 logramos hacer más de 70k que se donaron a diferentes hospitales.
La donación de la comida fue una colaboración del Santa Ana Rotary Club y el Pollo Norteño.
