As Featured On

High Demand PPE Items

We have significant needs for the following items:

N95 Respirators

These masks are critical in protecting healthcare workers from infectious droplets and aerosols.

Surgical Masks

Although not as secure as N95 masks, surgical masks do offer a significant degree of protection against droplets with SARS-CoV-2.

Protective Goggles

Eyes/Eyelashes are a known source of transmission of SARS-CoV-2, especially in aerosolizing procedures.

Gloves (Nitrile, Non Powdered)

Glove, a critical item in hospital patient care and hand protection, face extreme shortages.

Face Shields

Assists in preventing droplets and airborne SARS-CoV-2 from entering eyes, a known source of transmission.

Wipes & Disinfectant

These wipes are critical to wiping down medical machinery, workspaces, computers and rooms after patients have been in them.


These microporous suits are worn over clothing to keep airborne and droplet transmission via clothing.


Booties are worn over shoes to eliminate floor contact and can be useful in situations where there might be sputum or other fluids on the floor that could get carried around the hospital or to the healthcare worker’s home on their shoes.


Gowns cover the clothing, and thought not as effective as coveralls, they can provide an additional layer of protection, especially when working with COVID-19 patients directly and performing risky procedures.

Our Data

The majority of surveyed institutions have less than 2 weeks of PPE supply remaining
