Connecting PPE supplies to frontline workers

  • There's a mass shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) as well as sanitizer, disinfectants, and other materials necessary to keep essential workers from exposure to coronavirus. Hospital workers are priority for access, but there may be supplies that aren't "certified" for use in the hospital environment but could work well for other workers. Please share resources in the Chicago area!

  • There's this spreadsheet started for institutions and businesses to share offers and needs; a good place to start tracking where resources exist and who needs them! Thanks to Jen Nelson with Seven Generations Ahead/Wasted Food Action Alliance for getting this started and maintaining the form.
