Published: March 28, 2020

On Friday, the Nebraska Chinese Association delivered 5,000 urgently needed medical face masks to Methodist Hospital.

Linda Steel with the Nebraska Chinese Association said, “If we can try to help the health care providers, in turn they are helping the community to save lives.”

Steele says each mask cost about 60 cents through their contacts and it took about a week to arrive.

All of it paid for through money that was donated to their organization.

Josie Abboud, CEO of Methodist Hospital, said, “It's contacts like these that really create a lifeline for those that are on the front line fighting this disease.”
