Donate supplies for the frontline

Your donations of personal protective equipment (PPE) both large and small are making a difference for our frontline healthcare workers.  Thousands of local residents, faith groups, businesses, community organizations and others have already joined our efforts by donating over 2 million items to the Valley Medical Center Foundation.  Those materials, in partnership with County of Santa Clara Emergency Operations Center, have been distributed to hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, clinics and other high-risk environments throughout Santa Clara County.  It has saved lives.

As we prepare for a potential surge of COVID-19 cases that will collide with flu season in the fall, we must continue to acquire PPE to avoid catastrophic shortages.  Your help is needed now more than ever.
