Celebrating a new public-private partnership aimed at providing PPE for service providers

We are continually reminded of just how connected we all are – and how much we depend on one another.

The BHHSURG, Salvation Army’s KROC Center, the KEY Project, Kalihi YMCA, Hawaii Community Foundation and Black Sand Capital have come together to secure donations of homemade personal protective equipment (PPE; like masks and face shields) to distribute to essential behavioral health and social service providers statewide. Multiple drop-off and distribution sites, or “resilience hubs,” have been organized and have opened across O‘ahu on April 9. The effort aligns with the new recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to wear cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.

We also welcome gracious donations of unopened store-bought PPE (masks, goggles, gloves) from the public and community. In the future the resilience hubs will also be accepting supplies such as bleach, hand sanitizer, paper towels and toilet paper. These can be dropped off Monday through Friday during set times or by appointment at each resilience hub.
