Capper foundation buys PPE for workers to keep helping community

Coronavirus

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – Workers at the Capper Foundation visit homes to help people with disabilities every day, putting themselves at risk for coronavirus.

Thanks to a grant given by the Topeka Community Foundation, they are able to buy protective gear for their workers. Ramona Macek with Capper said it was a difficult time for some of the people to deal with coronavirus.

“It’s been a challenging time for them at this time because they are also isolating from their friends, they don’t have visitors or family coming by,” Macek said.

She said they use around 250 masks per day, so now they have the equipment, they are able to stay as safe as possible.

“Knowing that it’s so important that we do have the donations and supplies that are needed to provide support for our staff to keep them safe from the coronavirus,” Macek said.
