PAWIS delivered PPEs to care facilities in San Jose affected by COVID19 (Mt. Pleasant and Canyon Springs) as well as to other care facilities/care homes (Elwyn California, El Sereno, At Home Senior Care) and allied organizations (Day Worker Center of Mountain View and Fight for 15). We also gave PPEs to some nurses at Kaiser, caregivers and postal workers. Shout-out to the makers of the faceshields- Bonifacio “Bon” Capuyan, Erin and Danny and to Jamie, the medical students of Stanford University and the awesome Ethan Chua for facilitating and bridging the PPE sources to PAWIS. To our big hearted donors, PAWIS made sure that the PPEs also went to ordinary essential workers struggling in the frontlines.
PAWIS also delivered Ube Halaya and cloth masks to its members and contacts.
Thank you to our delivery persons: Tess, Jude, Pura and hubby, Donnalynn and daughter.
Salamat din Pastor Ruth Casipit Paguio and Fr. David Starr for the use of the parking lot of the Holy Family Episcopal Church as our rendezvous point.
