Amidst the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, celebs  are doing their part to be helpful. Amber Portwood, 29, star of MTV’s hit reality series Teen Mom OG opens up to People magazine about how she is helping during this time. The Indiana native decided she would donate 1,000 masks to Richmond State Hospital in order to do her part. 

Amber, mother of two (Leah, 11, with ex Gary Shirley, and James, 1, with ex Andrew Glennon) tells PEOPLE “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.” 

Portwood goes on to say,”I did this about a week ago. It’s just a nice gesture. It was something that was needed. I grew up an hour away from Richmond State Hospital. I just really want to help in any way that I can.”

It is so nice to hear when people are going the extra mile to help fight this virus. This was something Portwood did on her own and it seems to be a trend among those able to provide support and that’s exactly what the world needs right now. Portwood practices social distancing while listening to science rather than politicians on the matter, she shares. 

On a recent episode of Teen Mom OG which airs Tuesdays nights Portwood revealed her new man Dimitri from Belgium, who she had connected with through an online dating service.

“We’re still talking. He’s in Belgium. The coronavirus is obviously a big reason [we can’t see each other], and that’s okay, because a lot of couples at the moment who are still in the same state have to do this,” Portwood tells PEOPLE.
