Quick Hits: The Spreading the Glove Edition

In Red Wings Land

Together Detroit: Wings’ Larkin donates gloves to area hospitals | DetroitRedWings.com

”So my dad, being a part of the beauty industry, has a supplier for gloves that he goes through and he actually had some in his garage,” Larkin said. “He was watching the news and I actually was, too. They made a mention that hospitals had a need for gloves and masks obviously so he felt he had a good chunk of them and I bought them off of him to donate to the hospitals. Kind of supporting him, and then we went through his distributor to get some more gloves to donate.”

The Larkins were able to collect 50,000 vinyl powder-free and nitrile gloves, with 25,000 going to the Detroit Medical Center and the other 25,000 going to St. Joseph Mercy Health System.

Hell yeah.

Love to see it. Good stuff from Dylan Larkin and his family.
