Send an email to Amy here if you need a pickup for donations, or deliver items directly to 765 Saratoga, Ventura.
- Masks: New instructional video here.
- Baby Monitors: This has been upgraded to a “NEED!” “When we are through this pandemic, we will sterilize them and offer to MediCal patients that deliver and need a monitor for their newborn. Nurses are relieved these are coming in for monitoring patients in overflow rooms.
- Temporal infrared thermometers: Temporal infrared thermometers are sold out everywhere. If anyone has any extras, that is another current need. We need approximately 20. Crazy to think in America, we can’t get the basics.
- All other “Personal Protective Gear”: We are still seeking all PPE, isolation gowns, N95 masks, surgical masks, gloves, goggles.”
