Share the KCMS PPE Effort
King County Medical Society recognizes that one of the largest needs during the Covid-19 crisis is PPE. To help our medical professionals stay safe we have created a way to provide PPE throughout the region.
King County Medical Society Community Foundation has created Frontline PPE, a non-profit organization partnering with local garment manufacturers, and professional tailors, to quickly and effectively produce FDA compliant, much-needed, PPE for our frontline health care workers.
KCMS has secured seed funding ($50K from Expedia), tailors and machines to create PPE. Now we need to raise enough money for supplies, and to provide some compensation to the volunteer tailors from the opera, ballet and uniform manufacturers who are newly unemployed from their arts organizations or retailers.
While we would appreciate your generous donation, we are hopeful that you will share this information widely with your family, friends, and even companies that might sponsor the effort. Many members have shared that they have patients that are asking for a way to help. Here it is!
- If your hospital or clinic needs PPE, let us know.
- If you have unused Surgical Wrap please consider donating to KCMS, we can use it to make masks.
Fundraising details below, or contact Salem Adisu, firstname.lastname@example.org directly with your requests for PPE or your donation of Surgical Wrap.
Thank you for your consideration and for all of your dedicated work.
Nancy L. Belcher, Ph.D., MPA., CEO, King County Medical Society
