“College of the Canyons has had a longstanding relationship with Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital, where so many of our nursing alumni are proud to be currently employed,” said College of the Canyons Chancellor Dr. Dianne G. Van Hook. “During this unprecedented time, we are committed to helping our local medical first responders in any way that we can. We are grateful for and applaud the efforts of all first responders who are on the frontlines of this epidemic.”

The COC nursing program donated the following items:

  • 240 N95 masks
  • 250 regular masks
  • 200 masks with face shields
