Mario’s Italian Cafe delivered 80,000 gloves to Eisenhower Health in Rancho Mirage and JFK Memorial Hospital in Indio.

These gloves, like many types of protective equipment, are currently in short supply.

Mario Del Guidice, the owner of Mario’s, says he was able to secure them for valley hospital workers through his contacts.

“We do a lot in the community on a regular basis but what we are trying to do now is help the first responders who are laying it on the line and this is one way we can do it,” Del Guidice said.

News Channel 3 wants to celebrate these neighborhood heroes.
