Dear School Leaders,  

As we navigate through this pandemic, many of you are looking for ways to be of meaningful help beyond your school walls. Hospitals and nursing homes are desperately low on critical items.   

Many of these items, such as masks and gloves, are manufactured in China and are on backorder. In many cases, healthcare professionals are nearly out of hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes because purchases by the public have depleted the inventory from suppliers.  

Please consider donating any unused extra supplies you may have stocked at your schools. Your donation will greatly help these facilities amid this shortage. 

Needed items include: 

  • Masks, both procedural and surgical  
  • Paper Protective Gowns  
  • Gloves  
  • Eye Protection  
  • Face Shields  
  • Splash Shields  
  • Hand Sanitizer  
  • Disinfecting Wipes  

If you would like to donate items, please contact your local hospital or nursing home for instructions on how to do so. 

Thank you for all you do for your communities. We are all in this together, and together we will navigate through this crisis.
