Seaside High School’s Mason Miller invites other graduates to consider a donation of their graduation gown as personal protective equipment for health care workers.

Seaside High School’s Mason Miller turned his graduation gown to good cause. The 2020 graduate donated his gown to meet personal protective equipment shortages for health care workers.

According to the nonprofit gowns4good, medical facilities lack personal protective equipment in the fight against the coronavirus. Health care workers use “anything they can” to protect themselves and their patients — even makeshift trash bag gowns.

Graduation gowns are considered more effective than other protective alternatives given their length, sleeves and zippered access.

“Graduation plans are being altered across the world, and we are hoping to create a positive impact during this unfortunate situation,” Miller said. “In lieu of using the school’s supply of graduation gowns for a commencement this year, I would like to ask Seaside High School to consider donating these graduation gowns to health care workers on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis.”
