Our goal is to acquire, distribute, and deliver a million masks to hospitals in NYC with the help of your donations!
There’s a shortage of masks, gowns, gloves and other critical supplies to protect our medical professionals in hospitals across the world. If hospital staff members catch the virus, their health is at serious risk, and they cannot work for at least 14 days. That’s a major problem.
