“We had a request come from our system office to assess the supplies we have and start conducting inventory,” said Director of Georgia College Public Safety Brett Stanelle. “We started in our Emergency Management team, and we branched out into other units around campus to see what aid we could provide.” “ Doing our part to deliver aid during this time of crisis is critical in combatting COVID-19 across the state— but it’s also just the right thing to do. ”

The call for critical medical supplies came from the University System of Georgia (USG) and requested all Public Safety and emergency management personnel to collect medical supplies that are typically used for everything from research and campus maintenance to nursing programs and on-campus health clinics.

“Doing our part to deliver aid during this time of crisis is critical in combatting COVID-19 across the state— but it’s also just the right thing to do,” said President Steve Dorman. “I’d like to thank all departments at Georgia College for acting swiftly to collect supplies from across campus that will now be distributed by GEMA throughout the state to Georgia’s front line medical care workers in dire need.”
