PPE Drive Revised 

Does your museum have surplus masks and gloves? Please consider donating them to our healthcare workers on the front lines of fighting this pandemic. 

It's easy!  

Step 1. Collect your extra personal protective equipment (PPE). Most sites will only accept unopened boxes of masks and gloves. 

Step 2. Look up the closest donation point at and drop them off. 

Step 3. Take some photos of the materials you donated and share them on Social Media with the hashtags #getusppe and #WAmuseumsgivePPE so folks can know about the important contribution your organization has made to our collective effort to beat this virus.
