OPPORTUNITITES TO HELP

  • VAM is partnering with the Virginia Assisted Living Association to compile virtual resources/learning/entertainment to assist those most isolated right now: residents of nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Email your suggestions for online activities to: jthomas@vamuseums.org 

PERSONAL PROTECTION EQUIPMENT (PPE) SUPPLIES

  • GetUsPPE.org - Grassroots effort to connect health care staff with donated PPE supplies and how to make masks
  • Get Us PPE DC donor form - Use this form to donate PPE supplies if in the Washington, DC area 
    Donors will be asked to identify what kind of PPE they have, how much, and in what condition. They will accept opened boxes of supplies as long as the supplies have never been used. Then a network of volunteers will process the information and reach out about arranging a pickup.
  • Mask Making Instructions
