JUST IN: New online portal for donating or selling PPE to support state’s COVID19 relief efforts. This effort will ensure that front line responders get the protective equipment they need to stay and push for more trained volunteers to join the response.
The Commonwealth’s COVID-19 PPE Procurement and Donation Program creates an easy portal allowing companies and organizations to sell or donate protective equipment that is in short supply given the global demands for such items.
By visiting the COVID-19 PPE Procurement and Donation website, businesses and organizations can offer for purchase or donation critically needed personal protective equipment, including:
• N95/N99 masks (respirators) • Surgical/procedure masks • Facemasks with integrated shields • Powered Air-Purifying Respirators (PAPR) • Goggles • Gloves • Protective suits/gowns • Booties/shoe covers • Headcovers • Hand sanitizer • Sanitizing wipes
The initiative announced today bolsters current efforts to leverage traditional and emergency supply chain channels.
The program also provides an entry point for local manufacturers to get more information on adapting their businesses to produce more equipment here in Massachusetts, an effort being led by the administration’s recently established Manufacturing Emergency Response Team.
