GEMA donates PPE to Macon clinic

The state donated hundreds of boxes of supplies to the Macon Volunteer Clinic this week.

MACOn, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – The Georgia Emergency Management Agency made a huge donation to the Macon Volunteer Clinic Thursday.

The Macon Volunteer Clinic provides healthcare to uninsured people in Macon-Bibb County.

GEMA made a stop at the Macon Farmer’s Market to deliver boxes of Personal Protective Equipment to the clinic.

The donation consisted of masks, gloves, robes, bandaids, cottons, and other supplies that can help with vaccination efforts.

Nancy White, the director of the clinic, says the clinic is grateful for the donation.

“I want to specify who is benefiting from this donation today,” White said. “It’s helping a 19-year-old young man who recently transitioned out of foster care and has his first job as a dishwasher. It’s helping rescue mission residents.”

The donated PPE was left over from the state’s mass vaccination sites.
