The Yakima County Office of Emergency Management is hoping you can help them by donating supplies needed by Yakima's first responders and healthcare workers fighting COVID-19. Spokesman Horace Ward says they're looking for things like hand sanitizer, non-latex exam gloves, cots or beds, surface disinfectant, surgical masks and disinfecting wipes. They're also looking for Alcohol prep pads, booties, face shields, touchless thermometers and gowns.
