VANCOUVER — Vancouver-based clothing manufacturer Herschel Supply Company has committed $500,000 worth of its bags to healthcare facilities across North America.

The company has already donated over 1,000 bags to hospitals in British Columbia including the BC Women’s Hospital, BC Children’s Hospital, and Burnaby Hospital, and 5,000 bags to Ontario facilities like Lakeridge Health, North York General Hospital, and William Osler Health System.

Product donations have also been made to several medical institutions throughout the United States including Lennox Hill Hospital, NYU Langone Medical Center and Kimmel Pavilion, Keck Hospital of USC, and others.

Herschel says it continues to work with health facilities and organizations to provide bags and find new ways to assist them.

Also, Herschel has developed and produced non-medical face masks to meet the increasing need for personal protective equipment.
