On International Nurses Day:

Today is International Nurses Day – and I cannot think of a more important group to thank right now than the nurses on the frontlines of this global pandemic. Thank you for your tireless work to keep our communities safe.

It goes without saying that these individuals are bearing a heavy and complicated burden at work each and every day exposing themselves to undue risk – largely due to the Trump administration's failure to plan for the COVID-19 pandemic to reach our shores. Even after weeks of working un- or under-protected, innovations by students with 3D printers, and craftspeople working to create fabric masks – the personal protective equipment (PPE) shortage continues.

The State of Massachusetts is working to get PPE into the hands of those that need it. If you have any of the following and are interested in donating you'd be making a huge impact:

  • Surgical/procedure masks
  • N95/N99 masks (respirators)
  • Face masks with integrated shield
  • PAPRs
  • Goggles
  • Gloves
  • Protective suits/gowns
  • Booties/shoe covers
  • Headcovers
  • Hand sanitizer

Thanks for standing with our frontline workers, we're all in this together.
