Project N95 is winding down operations by the end of this year.

As funding declines and society responds differently to the urgency of the pandemic, Project N95 remains dedicated to making a difference. We will continue to provide high-quality respiratory protection in the nonprofit shop through Sunday, December 17th, 2023, as well as via our donation program for as long as we are able.

During the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, reliable masks and other equipment were scarce. Supply chains broke down, shipments of desperately needed masks were diverted, and counterfeit PPE flooded the market. Doctors and nurses found themselves facing impossible odds as they treated overwhelming numbers of patients with little or no protection.

Project N95 stepped into this frightening void, and you came with us. We vetted products, connected healthcare professionals to reliable sources, and worked with manufacturers to stand in the breach for all the real heroes trying to save lives.

As the pandemic evolved, so did we. Our team reviewed thousands of products for authenticity, distributed more than 37 million units of critical PPE through our nonprofit shop, and donated more than 5 million items to those working on the front lines and others in need.

But this isn’t our story. Your purchases, donations, and support made it possible to help hundreds of thousands of people who thought help would never come. YOU SAVED LIVES.

It has been our honor to serve so many during this moment in history. We never could have done so much good without you. While this is the end of our chapter, the impact we made together will not be forgotten.
