Steve Chillrud from LDEO of Columbia University reached out to Robin to flag that many of our members and many in the Earth and space scientific community work in labs where there are N95 masks, eye protection, face shields and other protective gear that the medical professionals need (#GetMePPE).
We created a Google doc to assemble locations around the U.S. of medical facilities that are accepting donations, what they need and details for drop-off or pick-up.
But we need your help! While we will continue to update the Google doc as much as possible, we need you to help add your local information so that people can find their closest facilities. The Google doc is open so anyone can edit and access it without an account.
Please donate whatever you can to help us fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. We know that by working together, we will stop this deadly and dangerous disease.
