Where is the PPE donated?
Equip LA utilizes the network of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) to identify workers throughout the region that are in need of PPE. The project also utilizes the BizFed network to identify businesses in need. Large donations of medical grade PPE will be directed to the County of Los Angeles to be distributed to all public and private hospitals.
How do you donate?
