In 2018, NINC purchased a small quantity of N95 masks in case any of our conference attendees needed them for protection, as the red tide was particularly bad in St. Pete Beach that year. Recently, our sponsorship chair Rochelle Paige recalled that we still had them.

At her suggestion, we donated those masks to Wellington Regional Medical Center to help those on the front lines of treating patients with COVID-19.

Especially in these challenging times, every little bit helps. We're proud of our organization and of all our members who are reaching out to others in whatever way they can.
