Gov. Wolf: Online Portal for
Donations of Critical Medical Supplies Launches
Harrisburg, PA – The Wolf
Administration today announced the launch of an online portal for individuals,
corporations or community organizations to inform the commonwealth of
critical medical supplies available for donation during the COVID-19
received a lot of inquiries from people and businesses that want to help
first responders and medical professionals,” said PEMA Director Randy Padfield. “While some people are reaching out directly
to their local emergency management office or health care facilities, we
are able to coordinate efforts for donations of larger quantities or for
anyone who doesn’t know how to get these supplies to those who need them.”
stabilizing numbers of new COVID-19 cases, these supplies are needed most:
surgical/procedure masks; form fitting respirators (ex. N95/N99); face
masks with integrated shield; medical grade alcohol – based hand sanitizer;
aprons; protective gloves; protective goggles; isolation gowns; protective
suits; and sanitizing wipes.
details and specifications required for any donated materials are available
from the Pennsylvania Department of Health online via the Critical Medical Supplies Resource
and the CDC’s Protective Clothing Resource Guide.

updates related to novel coronavirus, visit the Department of Health
