Alice Lloyd College has donated 160 N95 Respirator Masks, valued at over $4,000, to the Knott County Health Department. As Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is becoming more and more scarce across the commonwealth, the College wanted to assist in any way possible.
The ALC Business Office was in possession of the masks. When staff realized that N95 Respirator Masks were in such high demand, they felt in their hearts that they needed to act. Business Office Manager and Controller, Arlene Watts, stated, “It had been on my mind for several days to donate them locally. I’m glad we were able to contribute to the community during this time of need. It feels good to give back to an organization that helps our community so much.”
Kentucky River District Health Department (KRDHD) Public Health Director Scott Lockard stated, “We, at KRDHD, greatly appreciate ALC’s donation and support. [Their] generosity helps to further our mission to decrease the spread of the Coronavirus in our district.”
ALC is humbled to take part in any effort to protect or better the region during the outbreak of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). The College strives to lead through service and holds to the Browning Philosophy, which closes with: “Thou shalt be served thyself by every sense of service which thou renderest.”
