FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Brooklyn, NY (January 25, 2021) — In 2020, Project N95 – a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization – provided 5,046,629 units of personal protective equipment (PPE) to healthcare workers throughout the United States. This led to the protection of hundreds of thousands of workers in hospitals, long-term care facilities, and other healthcare centers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The need is great, particularly in small clinical settings and rural communities, and Project N95 is here to meet that need,” explained Anne Miller, executive director.
Project N95 began in direct response to the coronavirus crisis and addresses the PPE shortage caused by economic barriers and unequal access to the supply chain. Since its launch in March, the volunteer-powered non-profit has partnered extensively with medical societies and community organizations to provide healthcare workers–notably those in small, independent practices serving under-represented or at-risk communities–with the opportunity to purchase vetted PPE and other essential medical supplies.
Project N95 makes it possible for healthcare workers to purchase PPE from a trusted source, in the lower quantities that community clinics and practices typically need--giving them access to a supply chain that would otherwise be unattainable.
About Project N95 Project N95 protects healthcare and essential workers, as well as underserved and vulnerable communities by providing equitable access as quickly as possible to vetted personal protective equipment (PPE). As the leading rapid response 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Project N95 has become the national clearinghouse for critical PPE.
