Hood Partners with Community Organizations for COVID-19 Relief

FREDERICK, Maryland—Hood College has partnered with several community organizations to help the effort against COVID-19.

Hood’s Department of Nursing has donated six bins of personal protective equipment (PPE) to Frederick Health in response to the equipment shortage. These bins included safety goggles, face masks, N95 masks, gowns and gloves. Hood is also donating pocket-sized hand sanitizers to Frederick Health from its marketing give-a-way items. In addition, the College is making space available for doctors and nurses to stay so they don’t have to go home and risk spreading infection to their families.

Also, Georgetown Hill Early School, which operates Hood’s Georgetown Hill Child Development Laboratory School, is operating a daycare for children of essential hospital personnel.

Hood works cooperatively and strategically with its many partners to enhance the quality of life in the region and beyond. As a pillar of Hood’s strategic plan, partnerships are a way to “enrich and serve Hood College and the Frederick community.”

Hood College is an independent, liberal arts college, offering more than 25 bachelor’s degrees, four pre-professional programs, 19 master’s degrees programs, two doctorates and 10 post-baccalaureate certificates. Located in historic Frederick, near Washington, D.C., Baltimore and the I-270 technology corridor, Hood gives students access to countless internships and research opportunities.
