No matter how we gather, #wearesandalschurch

What We are Doing

In response to the strain COVID-19 has placed on the medical community Sandals Church has mobilized volunteers, strategized and collaborated with local leaders and businesses to begin producing personal protective equipment (PPE) for our local hospitals, nursing homes, and first responders so that they can be safe while they work hard at keeping our community safe.

How We Got Here

During the early reports of the coronavirus spread, Sandals Church member Dr. Vien Doan decided to assist his medical community by purchasing materials and designing medical safety supplies from his home. Soon after, Dr. Doan reached out to his Sandals Church community for volunteers to help them produce more of these supplies, and faster. While initially providing volunteers and reassigning staff to the effort, Sandals Church began to connect with local businesses and manufacturing companies to help ramp up the production efforts to prepare even more safety supplies.

What’s Happening Now

Since starting this work on March 30, Sandals Church along with our strategic partners have produced thousands of protective gowns and face masks and delivered them to our local hospitals. This work would not have been possible without the faithful giving of our church family, the generosity of local organizations and the creativity and collaboration of our local leaders and businesses.
