We know you and your team members needed more PPE yesterday. If we work together, we can add rocket fuel to this operation and save more lives.
Add your requests if you're in or around the NYC area (25 mile radius from Manhattan).
We're working to consolidate our database with other local PPE donation efforts, to save time and get efficient together. In the meantime, we thank you for filling out yet another PPE form :)
We are a small volunteer team of local citizens and small business owners. We run a marketing agency by day, and wanted to use our skills to organize a collective effort and help our NYC healthcare workers during this crisis. They take care of us every day. Now it's our turn to make our best efforts to take care of them.
Once our hospitals have enough, we’ll close our doors.
Together in a few months — we helped gather, distribute, and coordinate over one million PPE donations across the city. Your contributions helped protect NYC's front-liners during an unexpected, urgent time of need.
They have worked hard to establish long-term non-profit organizations and teams who work hard every day to match and deliver PPE donations to those who need it most.
Thank you for working with us to help the people of our city this year. It’s been such a pleasure.
