A group of Los Angeles volunteers have set up a national hotline to help during the COVID-19 pandemic and provide medical supplies to the frontline workers.

Supplies Save Lives is a group of volunteers who have set up a text number to collect donations from citizens, businesses and other places that may have a surplus of N95 masks, surgical masks, fabric masks, isolation gowns, gloves and wipes.

Raina Kumra co-founder of Supplies Save Lives talked about how the group is providing Zero Contact pick up in the Los Angeles area for those residents and local businesses who want to donate unused surgical or n-95 masks, nitrile gloves or antiseptic wipes from their earthquake kits as there is crucial need for these items in local hospitals and homeless shelters.

Supplies Save Lives provides a simple process that will make a big difference - just text MASKS to 844-974-2444 and you will be asked for a description of your donation and your pickup address.
