How Can Businesses Help?

Request for Donation, Manufacturing of Medical Personal Protective Equipment:

The strong sense of community that has long been shown among Pennsylvania's business leaders has set us apart as leaders around the world. At this moment, that community strength needs to be exhibited more than perhaps at any time in our lives. As the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting the Commonwealth and the nation, there has been much attention paid to the fact that the health care community is critically low on the personal protective equipment (PPE) that will help guard them against contracting the virus as they continue to perform the important work of diagnosing and treating patients.

The PA Chamber is making two urgent requests of businesses across Pennsylvania:

  • We are imploring businesses that have access to or a supply of N95 masks, eye gear, medical gowns and medical gloves and do not anticipate the need to utilize these items in the near future to donate them to their local hospitals. At the moment, a shortage of these items is resulting in health care providers having to wear the same PPE for hours on end, heightening their risk of contracting the virus. A complete list of in-demand supplies that are needed can be found here. If you are able to assist in this crucial request, please email opportunities@hapevolve.com. Any questions may be directed to Joe Tibbs, President of HAPEvolve, who is coordinating the effort on behalf of HAP.
  • We are urging all businesses that believe they are able to turn their existing supply chain into the PPE output that the health care industry so desperately needs to please contact PA Chamber Government Affairs Director Kevin Sunday at 717 645-2071 or ksunday@pachamber.org.
