Donate to the COVID-19 Prevention & Response Fund
The COVID-19 Prevention & Response Fund is a community-led effort to invest in neighborhood-based solutions to urgent needs related to COVID-19. The Fund seeks to increase rates of vaccinations in communities that are disproportionately affected by COVID-19 and to address the challenges exacerbated as a result of the pandemic.
Donate personal protective equipment (PPE)
Health care providers are experiencing serious shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE). Without this equipment, providers are in danger of becoming sick or transmitting the COVID-19 coronavirus to others.
The City is currently seeking donations of protective equipment and supplies, including:
- N95 respirators and face masks.
- Disposable or washable surgical masks, dust masks, or other protective masks that cover the mouth and nose.
- Disposable and washable gowns.
- Eye protection.
All items should be in the manufacturer’s original packaging and unopened. We cannot accept open products or homemade items.
Hunger among those who are unsheltered is rising. Meal sites throughout Philadelphia are facing increased demand.
