In this time of social distancing and quarantining-in-place, it’s important to remember that nothing is more important than our communities.
Supporting one another is the only way to pull through this darkness while the Coronavirus and COVID-19 epidemic continues to infect our loved ones and claim more lives around the globe.
With our assistance, Tribal Wave, an online retailer that handcrafts medical apparel in African tribal patterns, has donated a supply of re-usable, washable face masks to the healthcare workers at the Family Healthcare Center of Worcester, where several patients have recently tested positive for Coronavirus.
The masks are designed to emulate the shape of the N95 medical mask, and can be used as an additional layer of protection against 1-micron particles. And their stylish patterns and colors will help to uplift morale among the healthcare workers at the community health center!

Located in the city of Worcester, Massachusetts, the Community Health Center of Worcester – like so many of our community health centers – provides crucial primary care to underserved communities. Similar to hospital emergency rooms, urgent care facilities and doctor offices, community health centers are often the first point of contact for patients experiencing COVID-19 related respiratory issues.
Not only must we recognize the peril we face, but we must work together and find solutions both inside- and outside-the-box, to help our neighbors and healthcare workers now, when they need it most.
At Digital Sapien Interactive, we are continually inspired by our small business clients and the huge contributions they make to this fight.
Everyone can make a real impact by supporting both small businesses and their local medical centers.
How? Here are a few ideas:
- Donate a meal from a local restaurant to your local medical staff
- Check the websites of your local hospitals, health centers, and senior care facilities for posted lists of supplies in need and make a donation
- Donate any of the following to your local medical healthcare facilities, grocery stores, delivery services, and other essential workplaces:
- N95 medical masks

- Rubber gloves
- Latex gloves
- Hand sanitizer
- Sanitizing wipes
We can beat Coronavirus and COVID-19 together.
