BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Canisius College’s biology department donated 6,000 pairs of exam-grade gloves to Mercy Hospital in South Buffalo Thursday morning.

The gloves will be worn by healthcare workers to protect them and prevent the spread of germs as they work.

Canisius College announced earlier this month that it will not reopen its campus for the rest of the semester due to COVID-19.
