Personal protective equipment is our best defense against coronavirus
…yet more than six months into the COVID-19 pandemic, there are frontline workers across the country who still desperately need more masks, gloves, disinfecting wipes, and other types of PPE. Get Us PPE exists to solve this problem.
Founded by emergency physicians in late March 2020, we are now the nation’s largest nonprofit getting donated PPE to people in need. We care about health equity, and we deliver PPE to those in need including nursing homes, rural communities, and homeless shelters. We also have initiatives to support PPE for Schools and PPE for Black Lives.
PPE shortage crisis:
Most recent data is alarming
The latest PPE Shortage Index indicates our country is still facing serious PPE shortages.
