Medical Supply Drive in the Inland Empire

Description

Hospitals are running out of equipment to protect themselves and patients across the United States. We are a local chapter of national student-led non-profit organization, Medical Supply Drive, whose mission is to help with the PPE crisis resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Our chapter in the Inland Empire is an initiative in which M1s through M3s are involved in identifying and gathering donations of PPE from local community partners and businesses and delivering them to our local hospital. Community partners that have agreed to donate include colleges, construction companies, and hair salons.
