Currently our frontline workers battling COVID-19 are facing critical shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE). Many of these frontline workers, who include healthcare workers, grocery store workers, emergency medical technicians, firefighters, and police officers, are putting their lives at risk while providing essential services due to their lack of PPE.
In order to protect our frontline workers, our mission is to donate masks and other necessary PPE directly to frontline workers.
In the weeks after learning of this critical shortage of PPE, we have sourced masks, face shields, gloves and protective gowns from our trusted vendors. We have received and donated close to 30,000 units of PPE directly to the workers most at risk of being infected by COVID-19.
With a reliable PPE source and established logistics, we would like to keep the momentum going in providing the much-needed PPE to our frontline workers. We are asking for donations to continue to purchase and provide critical PPE to our frontline workers in the hardest hit areas in the United States.
With generous donations from out sponsors we have delivered over 34,773 PPE in two weeks!

My name is Ricky, a manufacturing engineer and SCM working in San Francisco. My wife, Erica, is a healthcare worker in San Francisco. When her hospital faced PPE shortages, I reached out to SF companies for donations. I learned quickly after, from our network that many hospitals in the US were facing similar shortages of PPE — particularly in NY, NJ, LA, MI.
My colleague Andrew and I wanted to help and started reaching out to our manufacturing network. We found a generous supplier that has donated over 20,000 units of PPE (masks, gloves, gowns, face shields, and goggles) in just 1 week to over 10 hospitals (mostly in NY which has been the hardest hit state). This allowed us to make sure the masks are legitimate and test import / export.
