Alternative PPE

Hand-sewn masks

As there is currently no consensus in the health care community regarding the utility and safety of plain cloth masks as PPE for health care providers, at this time we are not accepting them as donations. However if you know of anyone who would like to donate cotton masks the KCPD and Johnson County department are accepting donations here:

Blue Wrap Masks

These are similar to hand-sewn cotton masks however they are made of a material that is utilized in the OR and sterile procedures and has an increased ability to filter particles. We are currently collecting this material from local hospitals for local sewing groups/volunteers to help us make masks. If you are interested please contact us for more information.

St. Luke’s hospital has also created their system which can be reviewed here.
