This is the fight of our lifetime right now and there are many who are on the frontlines battling this invisible enemy around the clock. We cannot take their place, so our mission is to support them and meet their needs. Recently we have been inspired by Destin Sandlin's recent Smarter Every Day video. There are gaps in the hospitals’ supply line and we are working to fill those gaps. Austin Fighting Covid’s mission is to start manufacturing, sanitizing, and distributing whatever personal protective equipment (PPE) Austin-area medical facilities may need while they wait for more supplies from their regular vendors. This is our fight for the lives of our community. Will you help us?
We are currently reaching out to medical professionals to evaluate their immediate needs, from ventilator parts to PPE. While we explore and investigate their needs, both now and in the near future, we are asking anybody who wants to help make face shields or homemade cloth masks to team up with the Masks for Docs initiative.
They have a specific file that needs to be printed using specific materials. Please view the instructions on their site. Once you have printed what you can someone will come to your house, pick them up from your doorstep, and deliver them to their processing center for distribution. This organization is really top notch and we will be partnered with them for the foreseeable future.
If you want to get even more involved with the initiative we definitely could use your help. The first step is to get set up with our Slack community. You can request an invite by sending an email to AustinFightingCovid@gmail.com.
