Several groups from Auburn University are doing what they can to help doctors and patients around the state, with multiple schools donating ventilators and other medical supplies, per Josh Vitale of the Montgomery Advertiser.

The athletic staff is doing itsr part as well to help create the masks that have run in short supply around the country.

"I hope to have, give or take, about 100 masks done in the next couple days and get these out to the people that need them," associate athletics director for equipment operations Dana Marquez said Thursday.
