Shields for Nurses was founded with the goal of generating PPE(Personal Protective Equipment) for our local healthcare professionals with 3D printers. The COVID-19 pandemic has heavily impacted the world and has put healthcare workers on the front line in danger due to a low supply of PPE. Although we know 3D printed equipment may not be as safe as FDA approved equipment, some protection is going to better than none. In a time where we must work together, we want to support our heroes on the frontline by doing what we can to keep them safe.
HOW CAN I HELP?
Anyone can help the cause by firstly spreading the word! Although this starts with anyone with a 3D printer, we can use help with transportation, coordinating, and outreach as well. To volunteer, sign up below with how you'd like to help make an impact!
You own a 3D printer and would be willing to utilize your machine to print PPE for our healthcare workers.
FOR SHIELDS REQUESTS
You work a hospital in need of more PPE and can ask as a point of contact on receiving the masks. We are currently focus on distribution in the Los Angeles, CA Area but are looking into shipping options to expand!
