St. Lawrence College (SLC) has donated three state-of-the-art ventilators, purchased last year, to local hospitals, one to the Cornwall Community Hospital (CCH), and two to the Kingston Health Sciences Centre (KHSC).  
In addition to the ventilators, other important supplies have been donated to the CCH, the Brockville General Hospital (BGH), and the Brockville Mental Health Centre (BMHC). These supplies include more than 20 boxes of examination gloves in various sizes and 6000 masks amongst the three hospitals, as well as hand sanitizer.  The requests were coordinated through administration at the hospitals and Barb Le Blanc, Associate Dean, School of Baccalaureate Nursing, and the supplies were delivered by the lab technicians at both campuses.
