SHIELDS FOR HEROES

We supply our HEROES with ARMOR

We are a not-for-profit organization founded to meet the urgent need of connecting our Heroes with the armor that they require to keep all of us safe. These Heroes are the doctors, nurses, porters, custodians, receptionists, clerks, food service workers, mental health professionals, and many others who risk their lives every day to save ours.

The armor that keeps them safe is called Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). PPE is made of several crucial parts including, but not limited to, gowns, gloves, masks, and shields. Along with our awareness and compliance with crucial safety practices, PPE is the system that shields our Heroes from infection and keeps them healthy and fighting to save our lives.

In furtherance of its mission, SHIELDS FOR HEROES connects the suppliers of raw materials with manufacturers, manufacturers with health care providers, and the general public with the power of knowledge. These are the necessary tools that will help our Heroes defeat the virus and keep us safe.

We are Shields For Heroes.

How does my donation help?

Your donation saves lives.

Your donation will connect our Heroes with the armor they need to keep us safe. This armor includes the protective equipment they desperately need as well as the information that the public needs to increase awareness of, and compliance with, crucial safety practices. These combined forces are the armor that will protect our Heroes so that they can protect us

Already we have connected doctors with N95 masks, hospitals with clear partition materials, and manufacturers of face shields with raw goods. Right now production facilities that we supply are making protective equipment around the clock, putting unemployed New Yorkers back to work and helping to bridge the gap in the supply chain of protective equipment.
