New Thing Nurse PPE Support for Healthcare Workers

Frontline healthcare  workers need Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). New Thing Nurse can help them get it. 

Organized to get KN/N95, surgical masks, eye protection, and other essential PPE to frontline staff who need it, all proceeds will go to finding, purchasing, and shipping PPE to nurses and their colleagues in need.

- 1,053 masks 
- 1,093 sets of eye protection/face shields
