Several hospitals are facing supply shortages of medical supplies such as protective equipment throughout the coronavirus pandemic. Healthcare professionals continuously remind the public that there is an extreme lack of medical masks. Any donation made will go a long way. Here are some organizations that are accepting supplies and donations.
Brigham & Women’s Hospital
Cambridge Health Alliance
Donation of supplies for hospitals including:
- N95 masks
- Surgical masks
- Procedure masks
- Protective glasses/goggles (can be previously used)
- Touchless Digital Thermometers (any extras can be useful)
- Hand sanitizer
American Red Cross
For those who are eligible and healthy, the American Red Cross is strongly urging donors to make an appointment to offer blood to those in need. The organization is facing a shortage of blood due to the number of blood drive cancellations during this pandemic. American Red Cross employees continue to follow health and safety protocols to ensure blood recipient safety.
Boston Resiliency Fund
The Boston Resiliency Fund was created to help those whose wealth and well-being have been immediately affected by the coronavirus pandemic. This fund intends to help:
- Offer food to Boston’s children and seniors
- The technology needed for Boston Public Schools’ students to learn remotely
- Provide assistance to first responders and healthcare workers so they can effectively do their job
Massachusetts Senior Care Association
The Massachusetts Senior Care Association is also facing a severe shortage of supplies. Please consider donating personal protective equipment (PPE) to help the frontline caretakers who are caring for this vulnerable population from coronavirus.
Donations through Keches Law Group
Some employees at Keches Law Group have been educating others on how they can help these healthcare providers during this tough time (like teaching others how to make face masks)!
