The schools receiving the donated supplies include Ocean Springs High School, Ocean Springs Middle School, Pecan Park Elementary, Oak Park Elementary, Magnolia Park Elementary, and Ocean Springs Upper Elementary.

Each school received 100 KN95 face masks, four gallons of hand sanitizer, four gallons of MicroSure surface cleaner, one bottle of 3M Disinfectant Cleaner concentrate (which makes 120 gallons), as well as four empty gallon jugs and 50 spray bottles to help the school’s enhanced cleaning routines.
