WNC access to Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and other products

Serving our frontline staff:  Nationally and globally, there are shortages of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). We realize that many of our partners in WNC are running low on inventory or need additional PPE and related products to keep their staff safe.  In partnership with many innovative local agencies and Gateway Wellness Foundation and Legacy Foundations, DHT is helping to source and coordinate the production of products locally and distribute them equitably across the region.  In the short term, the products will be prioritized to go to our doctors, nurses and other health care staff, as well as our law enforcement, paramedics / EMS, public health staff, and other key human services staff.  However, many of these local manufacturers are making these products available to any nonprofit or business or individual customers.  (Some may be limited in quantity).  Please see below.  

Last updated: April 20, 2020

Prioritized Agencies:  If you are in the 2nd column of prioritized agencies (“Front Line Agencies”), you should have received an email from DHT requesting you complete a needs assessment survey.  Front Line Agencies who complete a survey will receive priority purchasing status when they order direct from Kitsbow, H&H Distillery and Masks of Love.  In addition, if DHT is able to make a PPE donation to your organization, you will be notified by email. 

Prior to picking up your first PPE or other products, all prioritized agencies must return the In Kind Grant Agreement to Dogwood Health Trust. 

Please email covid@dogwoodhealthtrust.org with any questions.

All other organizations, or businesses, or individuals:  Please review the column on the right.  If a product is available, information is provided on how to order or get on the waiting list.
