Zaro’s Cafe Owner Assembling Face Shields at His Greek-Italian Restaurant

April 13, 2020

HUNTINGTON STATION, NY Edmund Zarou, the owner of Zaro’s Cafe, 135 West Jericho Turnpike in Huntington Station, is using his spare time at the restaurant to assemble plastic face shields in the empty dining room of his Greek and Italian eatery, Patch.com reported on April 9.

“I’ve converted our vacant dining room into a mini face shield factory,” he said, Patch reported, adding that “he is offering the shields to anyone who needs protection from exposure to coronavirus, to be picked up at the cafe.”

Zarou, a member of a 3D printing group on Facebook, found the instructions on how to print the head piece of the face shields in that group and told Patch that “he first made 80 of the plastic coverings that he then sent to a hospital in Chicago where they were combined with the other parts and used at the hospital.”

He soon found “all the materials needed to construct the entire face shield,” Patch reported, adding that “Zarou owns four 3D printers for another business that he’s been able to use” and “hopes to have 100 fully operational shields ready by next week.”

According to the Patch article, those in need of face shields should contact Zarou by phone: 516-643-0427.
