Bennington Rotary Provides Personal Protective Equipment to SVHC

BENNINGTON, VT—November 10, 2020—Left to right, Dana Rozycki and Vicki Wilson, co-presidents of the Bennington Rotary Club, met with Southwestern Vermont Health Care’s (SVHC) Director of Materials Management Ron Keefer, and Tom Dee, SVHC’s president and CEO, to donate 9,000 medical-grade facemasks to the health system.

“One of our main goals is to assist organizations worldwide that are fighting deadly diseases,” said Rozycki. “So we're happy to bring that home to our friends and neighbors at SVHC.”

Bennington Rotary Club provided a total of $4,340 for the purchase of the personal protective equipment. The club participated in the Rotary District 7870 COVID-19 Global Grant Program, in which funds provided by Bennington Rotary were multiplied by 3.5 times through a match at the district level.

“SVHC has been extraordinarily fortunate for the support it has received throughout the pandemic,” said Dee. “Our healthcare providers are very grateful for this contribution from the Bennington Rotary. The masks will be put to good use serving our community members.”
