Healthcare professionals like Ashley need our help. So many of them are facing an imminent shortage of PPE (personal protective equipment), especially in cities that are either bracing for or currently enduring surges in COVID-19 cases. The lack of PPE in medical facilities—including safety goggles, N95 masks, face shields and gowns—remains a serious concern in this global crisis. Those on the frontlines need this gear to stay safe and healthy while continuing to help patients who are battling this virus.
