OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) - A group called PPE4NE is doing its part to help protect health care workers on the frontline.

On Tuesday, the group donated 100 3D face shields to CHI Health Lakeside. It takes an hour to print just three face shields, so this donation is very important to the hospital.

It was made possible through a collaboration with volunteers and 3D printing specialists.

The shields are reusable. The group plans to have more ready to drop-off in the near future.
