While many kids his age are playing Fortnite to get through quarantine, Quinn Callander is doing his part to make sure the lives of front line health care workers are a little more tolerable.
The 12-year-old Maple Ridge scout has built hundreds of ear guards using a 3D printer he received for his birthday last year.
Callander’s mother, Heather Roney, said she and her husband saw a Facebook post in which a Royal Columbian Hospital nurse was calling on volunteers to make the guards, which ease the pain of wearing a mask for 12 hours in a row.
“Quinn and his dad went onto a website for 3D print projects and found a couple different types,” Roney said.
