GAF donation helps Franciscan personnel save lives and be safe

A donation from Michigan City roofing company GAF will help keep emergency healthcare workers safe from the spread of COVID-19. GAF provided $15,000 through its GAF Community Matters initiative to Franciscan Health Michigan City that was used to purchase a LUCAS Chest Compression System for the Emergency Department. The hands-free device delivers chest compressions to sudden cardiac arrest patients, and allows the medical provider to keep a safe distance, reducing the risk of transmission of airborne viruses. GAF Plant Manager Matt Hannon said the company has been lucky to operate in the community for 20 years and wanted to support the work being done by those on the front lines of the pandemic. “Understanding the risk that people put themselves at here, we just wanted to make sure that we could contribute to that work and support it in any way we could,” he said. “It is wonderful to have local Michigan City businesses support our healthcare efforts in the community,” said Dean Mazzoni, president and CEO of Franciscan Health Michigan City. The donation from GAF Materials was made through the Franciscan Health Foundation’s Preparedness & Response Fund to assist in the fight against COVID-19.
