Kate Faulmann and her team really do scrub up well.
Since April, the Geelong region’s Rona Scrubs volunteers have sewn more than 150 sets of medical scrubs for local healthcare workers amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The Rona Scrubs initiative was launched at the start of the pandemic to provide the sanitary clothing for healthcare workers treating those with COVID-19.
“We have far exceeded our original expectations from what started as an initial conversation to help a friend over a glass of wine on Zoom,” Rona Scrubs founder Annabelle Parsons said.
“The team looking after the Greater Geelong City Council have done an absolutely amazing job. Kate Faulmann, archangel distributor for the region, took on this area with the help of one of our earliest volunteers who drove fabric and patterns down to Geelong to help people get started.
“Not only have they made scrubs to complete the 150 orders they had from healthcare workers in their area but they are continuing to go above and beyond to help their neighbouring areas.”
