LifePath is in dire need of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), primarily facemasks, hand sanitizer, and gloves to be used in our programs where we are in contact with elders and persons with disabilities. These are the most vulnerable populations at risk of exposure to the Coronavirus. This equipment will help keep staff, volunteers, and consumers safe and can provide peace of mind that we’re doing all we can to protect those we serve and ourselves from virus transmission. This equipment is also needed to support our Home Delivered Meals Kitchen, where meals are prepared, packed, and delivered daily by 50 Meals on Wheels drivers to over 600 meal recipients. The impact PPE has on this work is exponential.
Update 3/25/2020 - We are in dire need of:
Hand sanitizer - 8 oz pump bottles or equivalent larger bottles or wipes
Spray bottles for homemade sanitizer - anything from 1 oz to 8 oz bottles
Aloe gel and 91% isopropyl alcohol (to make the sanitizer)
Face masks (surgical, dust, handmade)
If you have a supply of any of the above items you are willing to share or know where we can access a supply, please let us know. Call us at 413-773-5555 or 978-544-2259 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
