Western Technical College in need of PPE

Western Technical College improvements progress

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – Western Technical College is in need of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE).

The college is developing a plan for returning to campus as COVID-19 restrictions are revised or lifted. This plan includes providing PPE to students and staff, particularly for training essential workers in health and public safety careers.

Gloves, eye protection (goggles or glasses), and cloth or reusable masks and gowns are needed in order to replenish the school’s PPE supplies. In March, Western donated extra supplies to district medical facilities that were in need.

PPE can be donated by contacting Western’s Emergency Operations Liaison Patti Balacek at 608-785-9201 or by sending her an email.
