‘Teen Mom OG’ star Amber Portwood quietly donated 1,000 masks to a local hospital last month, in her home state of Indiana, amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
Amber revealed you People magazine that she wanted to contribute and do her part to help her community.
“Here in the Midwest we’re getting hit pretty hard… We called around to a couple places. I just wanted to do my part any way that I could, and the first place that called us [back] was Richmond State Hospital.”
“We just kind of asked them ‘What do you need most at the moment?’ and they said they needed n95 masks… I said, ‘If this is what’s needed, then I’m going to do that.’ So, I donated about 1,000 masks to them.”
Amber went on to talk about her own isolation and how her family is doing in this time of quarantine.
“I’ve been social distancing, doing what I’ve been told to do. I’m listening to the scientists more than the politicians,” she says.
“Leah is doing her e-learning with her teachers. It’s very hard for her she said, but she’s doing great. She’s doing really well. My kids are good… I write in my journal,” she adds. “I write poems just to get things off my mind and make me feel better.”
