Lansing, Mich. (WLNS) — The Michigan State University Chinese Faculty club has raised more than $30,000 for personal protective equipment to help fight coronavirus.
The campaign began on GoFundMe, where 183 donors have helped contribute to the growing fundraiser. In just more than five days, the organization reached its goal.
On March 28, Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced Michigan has received 100,000 masks to help healthcare workers fight COVID-19. She said another 8,000 masks were on their way amid the shortage of personal protective equipment across the nation and in the state.
On the GoFundMe page, the MSU Chinese Faculty Club said it plans to use the money to purchase PPE including N95 and KN95 masks.
