Students donate face shields in honor of coach who died from COVID-19

A group of teenagers in Montgomery County are working to make a difference for health care workers and first responders by donating hundreds of face shields for free.

Jeho Otuya and Storm Templeton said the donations started as a family project, then they got friends and classmates from the Landon School in Bethesda involved.
