Our Story

We are connecting the supply and demand of PPE in the United States and abroad.

We all think we’re screwed. I know without any doubt that I’m going to lose colleagues. There’s just no way around it.

A constantly evolving situation.
​​Since the pandemic began in March 2020, PPE4ALL formed to provide PPE to our nation’s most vulnerable populations. What started out as a handful of students with an idea has grown into a bustling, intricate network of motivated individuals coming together to have a profound impact. We first distributed PPE to health care professionals in New York City hospitals. From there, we shifted our focus first to essential workers on the front lines, then to protesters as they gathered to stand against injustice, and we continue to support Indigenous reservations, people experiencing homelessness, and others whose needs have been overlooked. Now, and always, we are filling requests for PPE for anyone who may need it. We strive to be a stabilizing force in this tumultuous time. As the pandemic continues to evolve, PPE4ALL intends to adapt with it.

I've learned how youth can mobilize to create a very powerful and helpful organization. It makes me feel empowered as I know that I can make a difference.

The need for PPE.
PPE, social distancing, and vaccines are essential to stopping the spread of COVID-19. PPE includes face masks, face shields, gowns, hand sanitizer, and nitrile gloves, all of which can prevent the spread of the virus. Our goal at PPE4ALL is to provide these life-saving supplies to those most in need during the pandemic.
Our labor has been considered essential. Our health has been considered negotiable and our lives are considered expendable.

Our future.
While we had hoped that the need for PPE would have subsided in a few months, we recognize that this virus is still far from being contained. With the rise in cases due to the Omicron variant, PPE4ALL is here to help and our requests have increased by over 1,500% since November, as we are one of the only remaining PPE distribution organizations. Our team continues to provide life-saving materials to the communities who are at most risk to COVID-19, including homeless shelters, essential workers, health clinics, schools, child care centers, food pantries, and more. To save lives, we’re going to need your help.

Your support will help us keep our stockpiles of supplies full, deploy staff and volunteers to feed families, provide extra transportation to those that need help getting to grocery stores or medical facilities, and provide relief to those struggling with rent and bills, and to our neighborhood small businesses who are closing their doors. On behalf of our staff and Board of Directors, thank you.
