HOW TO HELP

We are amazed by the amount of support that we’ve received so far, but we still have a lot of ground to cover! Here are some ways you can help:

Donate New or Unused PPEDonate New or Unused PPE

Collecting existing PPE is a quick win in the fight against COVID-19. Please check your garages, sheds, basements, and work vehicles for the following items. For more information on each of these items, click here.

  • Masks (N95 and surgical)
  • Gloves
  • Disposable gowns
  • Eye goggles & face shields
  • Disinfectants & hand sanitizers

Many local industries use the same PPE that our frontline medical workers rely on to keep them safe. For instance, we know that many products, including N95 respirator masks, are also used in other sectors, including:

  • Oil and Gas (especially in the field)
  • Construction (plumbing, carpentry, electrical, welding, landscaping, painting, drywalling, etc.)
  • Automotive, including mechanics
  • Dentistry, veterinary, and other clinics
  • Hotels and house cleaning companies
  • Trade Schools

There ae many initiatives underway across Alberta dedicated to producing various forms of PPE. A list of some of these initiatives is below.
