Duncan made them in Asheville, North Carolina, but he saw an article about a Canadian boy scout doing the same thing and knew he could do it too.
Duncan said it was his obligation to step up and help during this time.
“I know the doctors of our community work so hard and they are working harder than ever to help the people of the United States,” Duncan said. “And, I feel like it’s just kind of my job to pitch in when I can and make their lives easier.”
He said he and his robotics team have already given away 500 “Ear Savers." They can make around 50 new pairs each day.
