Responding to a call from the N.C. Board of Cosmetic Arts Examiners, local salon Grace Nails Professional Nail Care Salon found 1,000 gloves and 100 masks to donate to frontline medical providers and researchers.

N.C. Sen. Chuck Edwards (R-Henderson) picked up the supplies and delivered them to Transylvania Regional Hospital.

"It's good Samaritans like Kelly Thai and Grace Nails that will get us through this crisis. With personal protective equipment in short supply, we need everyday North Carolinians to step up and donate supplies if they have them. The people of our state owe Kelly, her team, and thousands like her a big thank you," said. "If North Carolinians have access to these supplies at home or through their place of work, I hope they will consider donating them to their local hospital. Please contact me at my district office (828) 785-4177, and I can arrange pick- up and delivery."

Hospitals around the state are facing a critical shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) and need new or open and unused:


•Plastic face shields

•Nitrile gloves (medium and large)

•Patient earloop masks (no face shield), both adult and pediatric

Grace Nails Professional Nail Care Salon is located at 101 Forest Gate Drive, Pisgah Forest
