Project C.U.R.E. and the Rocky Mountain Vibes baseball team have partnered to collect medical supplies to be distributed to all local Colorado Springs hospitals. The Colorado Springs PPE (Personal Protective Gear) drive for medical professionals in Colorado Springs is this Sunday, March 29th at UCHealth Park - Home of the Rocky Mountain Vibes which is located at 4385 Tutt Boulevard, Colorado Springs, CO 80922. Entrance for Donation Drop-Off is at the corner of Tutt Boulevard and Barnes Avenue.
Volunteers will be out there Sunday collecting donations and right now we are asking for the following unused items:
• Eye protection & goggles
• Face shields
• Surgical masks
• Sterile & non-sterile gloves
• Disposable gowns
• N95 Masks
• Sanitation Wipes
• Personal Wipes
Donations made on Sunday will benefit and be distributed to ALL hospitals in the Colorado Spring’s area. After donations are made, donors are asked to visit https://projectcure.org/request-a-receipt to request a donation receipt vs. getting one handed to them in-person to prevent transmission. Our volunteers will also be separated a safe distance apart and they are happy to unload the donations without the donor leaving the car. All PPE drives will be staffed with an on-site medical professional to help ensure proper precautions are taken to keep ourselves as well as our donors safe.
Project C.U.R.E. has provided medical supplies to under-resourced countries around the world for overy 30 years and says it's one of the largest distributors of donated medical equipment and supplies. Project C.U.R.E pivoted at the number of unprecedented requests from emergency medical services, hospitals, clinics, fire departments, and assisted-living communities across the United States. In response, CEO Doug Jackson says he has pivoted Project C.U.R.E. 180-degrees to focus exclusively on providing medical resources for COVID-19 in the United States. The Project is making their medical inventories available domestically, particularly in the regions and surrounding areas that host their distribution warehouses: Denver, Houston, Phoenix, Nashville, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Kansas City.
"Thank you to everyone who has been supporting Project C.U.R.E., their partners, and their local communities during this extraordinary crisis," said Jackson. "Our firefighters, nurses, doctors, and public health workers desperately need help, and Project C.U.R.E. as well as its partners, will support their heroic, lifesaving efforts, primarily through the procurement and distribution of personal protective equipment (PPE)."
Last weekend, the PPE drive at Mile High Stadium in Denver yielded 27 pallets of supplies in four hours. Visit https://projectcure.org to learn more.
