HOW I HELPED: One of my neighbors is a nurse, and her hospital ran low on PPE. I have a 3-D printer, and I realized we could use it to make face shields. It was the least I could do. My dad and I started right away. At first, each shield took three hours to print. We didn’t give up. We found a way to speed up the process so we could print a face shield every hour. A group of local teachers recently asked us for help, so I’m making more shields, as well as comfortable headbands to hold face shields in place.
MY TIP: Be determined and don’t give up. In the end, you could help a lot of people.
