Hillsboro School District donates more than 3,500 masks

March 24, 2020 - On Monday, Mar. 23, Hillsboro School District Custodial and Facilities staff gathered more than 3,500 protective masks from schools and the central warehouse (leaving more than 1,500 for school/District use when school resumes) and nursing staff donated them to local first responders and healthcare workers. 

The masks went to the following locations:

  • Tuality/OHSU - 1025
  • Hillsboro Fire and Rescue - 150
  • Kaiser Westside - 1050
  • Providence St. Vincent - 1286

District Nurse Kristin Rueber noted that everyone was extremely grateful for the masks, and that some nurses even had tears in their eyes knowing they would be able to safely work another shift.

Thank you so much to everyone who helped with this effort! Proud to be HSD!!
