Access to Personal Protective Equipment

Nationally and globally, there are shortages of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

At Dogwood Health Trust (DHT), 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, business, or individual customers. (Some may be limited in quantity).
