Our website was transformed into an information hub to provide all the necessary tools such as downloadable patterns and crowdsourced tutorials on how to make PPE, resources on fabrics and trims needed for medical grade PPE lists of hospitals and facilities that are seeking donations or purchases of PPE, as well as companies currently involved in producing PPE so that we can better help, connect and serve the medical and healthcare community to the supplies they need in a timely fashion.
Everything you need to know.
HOW TO MAKE
We developed more than 10 video tutorials on how to make masks, protective suit, disposable and washable isolation gowns, and surgical cap. Also offered key tutorials in Spanish.
PPE Production Kit Distribution
We partnered with Humans From Home, a nonprofit established by Emile Khattar to mobilize the American workforce quarantined at home, FGFH offered their MadeByUS kits that include everything needed for someone to sew PPE isolation gowns, on the FGFH website. Each kit includes gown assembly instructions as well as pre-cut medical grade waterproof non-woven gown panels, YKK hook and loop closures and tape belt for the waist for 5 or 20 gowns depending on the kit purchased. These kits enable anyone that is able to sew to purchase the kits and produce PPE for their own communities in need.
