Central Valley PPE Initiative, cv.ppe.drive@gmail.com

Now more than ever it is incumbent upon all of us to do what we can to flatten the curve. I am happy to join my colleagues in elected office in the valley, and the North Valley Labor Federation (NVLF) in this launching the the Central Valley Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Initiative - an effort to collect and deliver much-needed medical supplies to first responders and front line health care workers. This initiative encourages individuals and businesses - especially dental and veterinary offices and construction companies - to donate new or unused essential supplies such as masks, protective eyewear, surgical gowns and gloves.

If you have unused medical protective equipment in your home, workplace, or school and do not have an immediate, critical need for them, please reach out to donate them to frontline health care workers and first responders.
