Another community business is stepping up to help those on the front lines of the COVID-19 battle. 

Prince George Ford is donating 200 face shields to Northern Health to assist nurses, doctors and others helping fight the pandemic. 

“We are proud to donate these 200 shields to the Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation for use at UHNBC and help support the front line workers right here in our community," Prince George Ford General Manager Chris Wall said in a statement.

"Prince George Ford has strived for a more personal connection with the community in the last few years and we look to continue that push for connection. We hope it helps bring some sense of security in these unprecedented times." 

Ford Canada has already produced more than 14,000 face shields through its Windsor Plant and as they are produced, they are being offered all over the country. 

"This donation of PPE is very greatly appreciated," says Judy Neiser, CEO for Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation. 

"Locally, Prince George Ford has been a significant donor to Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation through generous cash donations as well as participating in the Festival of trees last year. We are grateful for all that they do in the community in general and this is another example of their generosity and caring nature."

Ford Canada also announced earlier today (May 8) it is increasing production to deliver 2.75 million face shields to frontline healthcare workers and first responders through its Windsor Site operations.
