CASPA donated 350 protection gowns to Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, Kaiser San Jose and Washington Hospital on March 25 2020.
Dear CASPA members and friends,
The rapidly evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic has called upon CASPA and each of you to take action in helping our community to combat the spreading of the virus. Many Bay Area hospitals are currently facing a shortage of medical supplies as they contend with increasing numbers of COVID-19 patients. These include but are not limited to personal protective equipment (i.e. N95 masks, surgical masks, face shields, gowns), disinfectant wipes, hand sanitizer and other items. To help protect the health and safety of patients, medical staff and our community, CASPA has decided to organize a donation program. We hope that you will donate medical supplies to those that need them the most. A list of some Bay Area hospitals and clinics that are accepting such donations is provided below.
Additionally, we also hope that you will help raise funds for the purchase of these urgently needed medical supplies. CASPA has identified various credible suppliers in the US and Asia. With funds raised in this donation program, we will donate the purchased medical supplies to local Bay Area hospitals and clinics that are in dire need of such items.
Some examples of the acceptable medical supplies are listed below (based on VMC Foundation). Equivalent supplies from other manufacturers will be accepted.
