You likely have read by now that emergency departments around the country are experiencing a shortage of critical supplies as they contend with the coronavirus. DC is not immune — our local hospitals and clinics are in dire need of personal protective equipment, specifically surgical masks and hand sanitizer. Without them, doctors and nurses in emergency rooms taking care of patients with COVID-19 aren’t able to protect themselves.
These medical professionals are on the front lines of the coronavirus battle, putting their own health — and lives — at risk to help others.
We need to help them.
KFDC is launching a drive for critical supplies and seeking donations of surgical masks and hand sanitizer. If you stocked up heavily on either and have any to contribute, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will provide information on where to send supplies and facilitate getting it to an emergency department.
Thank you and please share widely!
