The El Paso Community Foundation has created a fund to help the El Paso County Medical Society address a serious shortage of N95 respirator masks and other Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) desperately needed by outpatient physicians and healthcare workers.
Hospitals have their own supplies and suppliers, but N95 respirator masks are very difficult to obtain for outpatient physicians and other providers in El Paso County. Additionally, outpatient physicians have no store of other PPE items, such as goggles/face shields, gloves, hazmat suits. As a result, many providers are unable to safely see or test patients, shunting more patients unnecessarily to emergency rooms.
The El Paso Community Foundation will match donations dollar for dollar to the El Paso County Medical Society COVID-19 Masks and PPE Fund.
The El Paso County Medical Society COVID-19 Masks and PPE Fund will help raise money to purchase much-needed N95 respirator masks and other personal protection equipment (PPE) for outpatient physicians and healthcare workers.
The El Paso Community Foundation was established in 1977 to foster philanthropy and provide a long term endowment to address the unique opportunities and challenges of the El Paso, southern New Mexico and Ciudad Juárez region.
We are a nonprofit too. Donate to Giving Compass to help us guide donors toward practices that advance equity.
