Somerset County Seeks Nitrile Gloves, Face Shields, and Other Protective Gear
Supplies of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) are low due to the current public health crisis. As a result, Somerset County’s Office of Emergency Management is asking ‘nonessential’ businesses to donate their PPE supplies for the benefit of RWJ University Hospital Somerset and local first responders.
The types of PPE being requested include: Nitrile gloves (any size); Coveralls; Tyvek suits; Medical gowns (any sizes); Face shields; Goggles; N95 masks; P100 masks; and air purifying respirators.
Only unexpired items will be accepted.
A drop-off location will be set up at the Somerset County Public Works Garage, located at 410 Roycefield Rd., Hillsborough 08844. Drop offs will be accepted between 10 am and 4 pm, starting Monday, March 23. Donations will be accepted through Friday, March 27.
All employees and volunteers working at the drop-off location will be practicing social distancing and maintaining a space of six feet or more. Donors are asked to observe the same precautions.
