Donate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Updated 4/3/20

While health facilities work to secure more supplies, our community can help bridge the gap by donating PPE you may have at home, at your school, or at your workplace. As our understanding of the public health emergency evolves, our donation efforts are changing, as well. We are now accepting hand-made cloth face masks and have expanded the recipients of our donations to include senior housing and homeless shelters. If you prefer that your donation go to a health facility, please feel free to let us know by placing a note on your donation.
