June 9, 2020 – Karygiannis delivers PPE to Copernicus Lodge

TORONTO – Today, Jim Karygiannis, Councillor for Ward 22, Scarborough-Agincourt, delivered donated Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to Copernicus Lodge 1700 face masks and 120 bottles of hand sanitizers.

“Our seniors and residents in long term care facilities are at a greater risk of contracting COVID-19.” said Jim Karygiannis.  “Therefore, it is very important that the staff in these facilities have the PPE that they require.”

Copernicus Lodge, non-for-profit organization made possible through the efforts of the Polish Community, has 200 self care apartments and a 228 full spectrum of Long-Term Care beds for seniors.  COVID-19 has caused a great deal of stress and uncertainty for senior citizens

“I want to thank my good friend former City of Toronto Councillor Chris Korwin-Kuczynski for making this possible,” Mr. Karygiannis stated.
