Gowns For Good - 2nd Donation Delivery!

Dear Friends,

Thank you for your continued support of our
Gowns For Good Made In Americainitiative.  We have donated another 1,000 disposable isolation gowns produced by the NYC Manufacturer's Coalition last week to facilities testing and treating active Covid-19 cases.  The donations went to Housing Works in New York, Syl-View Nursing Facility in Georgia, Willowbend Nursing and Rehabilitation in Texas, Tuba City Regional Health Care in Arizona and Clinica Romero in California.

As we are seeing an increase of Covid-19 cases nationwide in the past weeks, the urgent need for PPE for many Frontline healthcare workers is dire.  We hope you will be able to continue to support our mission to produce and donate PPE to those in need.  Please visit our website to donate and help get the word out by sharing what we do.

website continues to be updated with new resources for those who are trying to create PPE for people in need in their communities.  See below some of the new resources available.

With Gratitude,

Julie Gilhart, Kikka Hanazawa, Miki Higasa, and Tomoko Ogura

Get PPE’s mission is to connect the PPE requests from those in need with the helpers who have the equipment, skills, and materials to offset that gap.
