As you know there is a severe shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) available.  The Fifth District office is receiving requests from from local hospitals and health care facilities.

In order to continue to care for patients presenting for urgent treatment, and to protect our fellow healthcare workers on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic, we are asking that you please consider making a donation of excess PPE, including masks, gloves, face shields, disposable gowns, and disinfecting wipes.  We are anticipating critical shortages for masks generally, and N-95 masks specifically.
