Donate masks and other PPE to hospitals if you can

  • 1.  Donate masks and other PPE to hospitals if you can

    HI all,

    I know many of us are working from home and are no longer able to access our buildings, but if you still are, I encourage you to consider donating your PPE to hospitals and emergency personnel.  Today is the last day we were able to head into work and grab what we need to work from home, and I grabbed our N-95 stashes and have been in touch with a doctor who lives in my neighborhood. She says that the hospital is already rationing masks and was grateful for the offer.  If your institution is able and you can safely get to those stashes, donate what you can.
