DONATE PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT

TO MIAMI HOSPITALS

Why is this request for help so urgent?

Miami is now a COVID-19 hotspot with record numbers of new cases. Dozens of Florida hospitals have reached capacity during this second COVID surge and PPE demand is not being matched with supply. With so many COVID patients throughout the hospital, facilities are quickly running out of personal protective equipment ("PPE") which is necessary to protect their patients' health and their own health, so they can continue caring for this enormous influx of patients.

 

We are a student-run nonprofit organization aiming to ease the burden this pandemic is causing our health care providers by:

  1. Collecting and distributing PPE donations

  2. Creating PPE with 3D printers and formally distributing to hospitals

  3. Providing donated/3D-printed PPE to facilities such as nursing homes

Contributing even a few PPE items will be invaluable to front-line workers who are currently rationing and reusing their limited supplies.

What we need right now

PPE Donations

We are desperate for personal protective equipment. Open boxes are welcome!

  • N95 masks (medical or industrial)

  • Surgical masks

  • Face shields

  • Long sleeve, knee-length gowns

  • 3D printing filament (PETG, ABS) and medical/food-grade transparent plastic to make face shields

No donation is too small! We will accept individual items! 

PPE Creation

We need homemade PPE to for our community and for our hospitals

  • Fabric face masks

  • Surgical caps

  • Long sleeve, knee-length gowns

From all of us:

Thank you for your interest in helping the healthcare workers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Your donations and efforts will help save lives.
