Staff from the Westman Women’s Shelter received supplies from Brandon Universities’ faculties of Health Studies and Science on Wednesday to help the non-profit organization’s efforts to contain COVID-19.

The Faculty of Health Studies and the Faculty of Science at Brandon University (BU) have answered the call to assist the non-profit sector in Brandon.

The two faculties collected items to help with the containment of COVID-19 and delivered them to the Westman Women’s Shelter and Meredith Place on Wednesday. The BU contribution was:

  • 38 boxes of gloves
  • 14 containers of hand sanitizer
  • 3 boxes of face masks; and
  • 6 containers of sanitizer wipes.

A huge thank-you to Myrna Bartel, Tanya Denys, Bernadette Ardelli, Neal Melvin and Christophe LeMoine for collecting the supplies from their labs.
