In New York, there are over 250,000 confirmed COVID-related cases and 15,000 deaths - contributing 31% of all deaths in the US. New York City is the hardest hit COVID-19 region in the world. COVID-19 has impacted the lives of every New Yorker, and now more than ever, New Yorkers need Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to help save the city.

The Community PPE initiative aims to provide free, essential medical grade supplies to NYC communities that need it most in order to lessen the spread of COVID-19 and to provide relief to NYC’s hardest hit areas.

The COVID Foundation will expand its already successfully proven supply and distribution model to bring PPE beyond hospital workers to arm New Yorkers with PPE Care Packages.

A $15 donation will provide a Family of Four (4) with a 2-week supply of medical-grade surgical masks, nitrile gloves, and hand sanitizers.

You can direct your donation to a specific region in NYC:

Lower Manhattan PPE

Yorkville & East Harlem PPE
