CHRISTUS Southeast Texas St. Elizabeth Infection Preventionist Karie Singleton said the donation includes items difficult to procure, like disposable thermometers and spray bottles.

“The N95 masks have a built-in nose protection to prevent skin breakdown that so many healthcare workers are struggling with, and the gator masks are fun,” Singleton said. “With the camo prints, some of our non-clinical Associates will be sporting them around the building. Each item will have a special place and a special meaning in our ability to care for our community. Thank you ExxonMobil for the generous donation.”
