FindTheMasks: Donate Masks and Protective Equipment for Healthcare!

Thursday April 2, 2020 | Donate, Featured

There are critical shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE) across Washington State and in all types of healthcare facilities.

FindTheMasks

Some self-labelled Seattle Techies are driving a national effort from www.findthemasks.com and raising awareness with #GetMePPE and #findthemasks.  PPE includes masks, safety goggles, booties, gloves, and disposable suits. They’ve recently deployed a new map tool on the website that covers all of Washington State and can be searched by city, zip code, or address. From FindTheMasks:

How to donate

  1. Call your local hospital and ask to speak to the charge nurse.
  2. Say what you have.
  3. If they say they’re fine, that’s ok. Call back in a couple days.
  4. If you are donating open packages, please put them in a ziploc bag with a note saying whether they have been used, whether anyone in your household has been sick or traveled outside the country, and the expiration date if known.
