Hospitals and other healthcare providers are experiencing a shortage of personal protective equipment during the COVID-19 emergency. Contractors, did you know that some of your supplies can aid medical providers and healthcare personnel during this pandemic? We are encouraging contractors to reach out to their local hospitals, health department, fire department, and/or local American Red Cross chapter to inquire about donating some of the following new items (please make sure they are in the original packaging):
• N95 masks
• Powered, air-purifying respirator (PAPR) hoods
• Surgical masks
• Procedure masks
• Isolation gowns
• Paper masks (with ties or elastic)
• Paper protective gowns
• Protective glasses/goggles
• Industrial face shields (e.g., industrial paint shields)

You can call non-emergency phone numbers to find out how to donate. Remember, we are all in this together and together we will pull through this.
