Answer The Call! Nurses at Lynn Valley need N95s!

Over 40 nurses across the Lower Mainland have offered to provide extra help at North Vancouver’s Lynn Valley Care Centre, which has been the centre of a coronavirus outbreak.

This same group of nurses have asked to be provided with specialized N95 masks to protect themselves while they are on duty.

Hello, 


My name is David Wong and I am both a pharmacist and principal of both the Corning Drugs location in Chinatown Vancouver as well as Shaughnessy Pharmacy on West Broadway. It is my natural instinct to want to help these health care workers so that they can help those who are affected. I have assembled a team called 'The Covid 19 Task Force' to assist during this crisis. This is the hardest hit area in BC with most of the deaths. We hope by providing these nurses the masks they have requested, they are able to to offer immediate care for the seniors at Lynn Valley Care Centre.


Our team's goal is to raise $8000 in order to purchase 2000 units of the N95 masks to donate to this facility or any other hospitals in need of the masks.


If you are unable to donate monetarily at this time, we would greatly appreciate that you would share this with as many people as possible so together we can make a difference. We need to act soon as people are dying. I thank you in advance for your consideration and help.
