Poll workers in Riverside County will feel safe and protected from the coronavirus thanks to the donations of face shields from students at Western Center Academy in Hemet.
SoCal Face Shields for Frontline Workers is led by the Carvalho brothers, 14-year old Zubin and 12-year-old Tenzing, who started printing face shields for friends and family in the early days of the pandemic. The movement grew from there.
There are currently seven high schools and five elementary schools printing and donating material. More than 15,100 face shields have been distributed to date.
The students have donated face shields to postal workers, grocery store workers, a Costco warehouse, schools, and Rady’s pediatrician offices.
This week, the students delivered hundreds of face shields to the Riverside County Registrar of Voters office to help the volunteers who will work in one of the 130 vote centers during the upcoming election.
The donated items are 3D-printed and arrive packaged and sanitized based on recommended requirements for the convenience of workers.
While mostly self-funded, the group does accept donations. All funds raised go toward material used in making face shields. To donate, click here.
