    ROCKPORT — With little fanfare and a lot of heart, the principal and facilities director at Camden Hills Regional High School delivered boxes of nitrile gloves to Pen Bay Medical Center in Rockport.

    The boxes originated at the high school, Camden-Rockport Middle School and Camden-Rockport Elementary School, were loaded into a van and delivered to Dawn Fuller, at the hospital.

    “All of us are inspired to see so many friends and neighbors stepping forward to share in our efforts to prepare for the COVID-19 outbreak,” said Mark Fourre, MD, president of Pen Bay Medical Center and Waldo County General Hospital. “This kind of support only strengthens our resolve. Thanks to Camden Hills Regional High School and all the others who have collected gloves and masks and other supplies that we may need in the coming weeks. Your community is stronger because of you.”

    Principal Shawn Carlson, Buildings Director Kieth Rose, Frank Sparhawk and others made the delivery March 20.

    “The school district was so happy to help our local health care workers and appreciate the opportunity to contribute to the greater good,” said Superintendent Maria Libby. “We will continue to partner in any way we can.”
