Medical Supplies Donation Drive

The Greater New York area is in desperate need of personal protection equipment (PPE) for its health workers. Afya is preparing to deliver these vital supplies to hospitals and federally qualified health centers during the COVID-19 crisis. However, there is a severe shortage of supplies, and volunteers are needed to help get more.

Volunteers can call their doctors, specialists, or dentists who have supplies to donate. They can also contact free-standing surgical centers, plastic surgery centers, construction companies, or manufacturers and ask them to donate their PPE.

Supplies needed:

  • Masks (all types, including N95)
  • Face shields
  • Goggles/eye protection
  • Procedure gloves
  • Disposable gowns and coveralls
  • Disinfectant wipes
  • Hand sanitizer
To volunteer:
  1. Secure any or all of the above supplies or establish a connection to a healthcare provider, facility, or manufacturer with supplies to donate
  2. Express interest below to alert Afya's volunteer coordinator, who will connect with you about the supplies you'd like to donate
