SCC Donates Essential Medical Supplies

Monday, April 6th, 2020

Southeastern Community College donated personal protection equipment (PPE) used for student classes and trainings. Items that are reportedly in high demand across the country and needed in Columbus County were collected and taken to Columbus County Emergency Services and Columbus County Regional Healthcare System. Those items include masks, gloves, and gowns. These are all essential items in preventative treatment against COVID-19. 

Items came from areas of the college including Workforce Continuing Education EMS and Curriculum.  

Community Colleges across North Carolina have come together to support local communities.  

“Community colleges are living up their name during this difficult time for North Carolina,” said NC Community College System President Peter Hans. “We continue to deliver high-quality online instruction to our students and prepare our front-line health care and first responder workforce. But we are also serving our local communities, businesses and the state in so many other ways.”
