We hope this email newsletter finds you happy and healthy. We’re great — thanks for asking.
We have now gifted PPE to 3,800 essential healthcare workers, a stat that represents 38% of our goal of 10,000. The volunteers at HKN are more motivated than ever to find, fund, and deliver PPE to those in need.
Shipments & Packages Update
Apologies to those of you who haven’t received your PPE yet. We’re in the midst of moving to a new fulfillment center, so some of this week’s shipments are delayed.
We promise to resume shipping at the end of this week, so hang tight, essential healthcare workers. Big thanks to Zenni Optical for all of their support and for acting as our makeshift fulfillment center thus far.
This pause in shipments has given us time to review our inventory. Unfortunately, not all requests can be fulfilled as expected. We want to let you know that some of you wonderful essential workers will be receiving a modified package with a combination of N95s, KN95s, and surgical masks.
Donating PPE to SF Veterans Affairs Medical Center
In April, HumankindNOW donated 5,200 N95 masks to the SF VA. We were heartbroken to hear that they were running critically low on PPE while caring for our Veteran heroes. Read the full article about this donation here.
HumankindNOW has supplied PPE to over 3,800 front line individuals as well as front line organizations such as Doctors Without Borders, Navajo Nation, San Francisco VA hospital, and Multicare Spokane.
Testimonial of the Week
“We want to work safely around our patients and ensure the safety of our family members. Two members in our office, myself included, live with high risk family members. Thank you for the help and support during these times! ”
