Shoutout to those helping out!!
Trooper Zink, a Vermont State Police trooper is using a 3D printer to make face shields for for staff at the Bennington Health and Rehab center. Staples even donated the clear plastic sheets.
Recently Trooper Zink of the Rutland Barracks was made aware that medical staff at the Bennington Health and Rehab center were unable to obtain personal protective equipment (PPE) to help protect themselves.
Trooper Zink, who in his free time enjoys 3D printing, made 60 face shields with the help of one of his friends. Staples even donated the clear plastic sheets used to protect against aerosolized particles.
This is just one of many examples of how communities come together in this time of need.
