Medical Students for Masks - Philadelphia

We are a group of medical and health professions students who are collecting monetary donations to purchase PPE for healthcare professionals in Philadelphia hospitals (and surrounding counties) during the COVID-19 pandemic.  100% of donations go to purchasing PPE.

Check out our website:

In the first 3 days of our organization's operation, we were able to raise over 19k with Venmo alone. Thank you to all the donors who helped us exceed our original goal. Our campaign has grown exponentially, and we are excited to be using GoFundMe to continue to support our efforts!

Example of how our funds are used: On 04/23/20 we donated 4000 N95s, 2900 KN95s, 250 surgical masks, 1000 ear savers, 1080 isolation gowns/lab coats + 25 face shields to 32 hospitals!

We are in contact with hospitals to learn their specific needs, then our team distributes PPE accordingly to the following hospitals: Abington, Bryn Mawr, CHOP, Dupont, Einstein, Holy Redeemer, Hospital of University Pennsylvania, Jefferson Torresdale, Lankenau, Mercy Catholic Hospital & Home Health, Narberth Paramedics, Nazareth, Penn Presbyterian, St. Chris, St. Joseph's, Suburban Community Hospital, Temple, Christiana, St. Mary's, Chestnut Hill Hospital, and many, many more!

You can make a direct impact! Together, we can reach our goals!

You can donate through Venmo to @Mark-Siden if you prefer, or PayPal to Gabi Yankelevich at
