Subject: Volunteer Opportunity with Medical Supply Drive

Description:
Medical Supply Drive is a nationwide organization that was started to collect
and donate unused personal protective equipment (PPE) to hospitals, clinics,
and other organizations in need. As a team of volunteers, we work to supply
clinicians with masks, gowns, and gloves to treat patients with COVID-19.
          When the COVID-19 crisis began, six 3rd year Georgetown University
School of Medicine students responded quickly to organize Medical Supply
Drive, a 501(c)(3) organization. We have collected hundreds of thousands of
units of PPE, as well as raised over $25,000 for buying and shipping
supplies. Our volunteer base of 1,500 members is growing across the U.S., and
we encourage you to volunteer with us to continue our effort! Many of our
initial volunteers are medical students, who are now returning to the
hospitals. However, as COVID-19 cases in Maryland, Virginia, and DC ramp up,
we are hoping to further extend volunteer and leadership opportunities to
undergraduate pre-health students.
          Our work primarily consists of calling and emailing local businesses
to collect PPE, then delivering these items to the hospitals in need. We are
also fundraising and collecting donations so that we can buy our own PPE to
supply to organizations in need. We have safety rules in place, use a
no-contact protocol, and work directly with the hospitals to ensure our
volunteers do not have to enter hospitals. This is a great opportunity to get
involved and help out during this global pandemic. If you are interested in
being a part of this effort, please fill out the google form below:
