Still available through August 10: Face masks, clear masks, gloves and other PPE for residents with disabilities

Dear Disability Community members: 

There is still time to place an order for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) through Thriving in Place!  We are especially hoping to reach residents with disabilities who may not have immediate access to e-mail, and those who may not have been aware of this opportunity when it was first announced.  Please help us share this information widely with members of your community, your neighbors, colleagues and any others who may benefit from this free, limited resource.

As a reminder, thanks to a generous one-time grant from Citi Community Partnerships and Empowered Cities, our partners at Thriving in Place are coordinating the distribution of Personal Protective equipment (PPE) for all San Francisco residents with disabilities who do not have immediate access to PPE through another San Francisco City and County program or service.

This PPE is available at no charge on a first come, first served basis.  Residents with disabilities may select desired PPE in kit form, and some items, like gloves, may be selected individually. 

Timeline: PPE orders started July 13. Orders for pick-up will close Wednesday, August 12th at 12pm, and orders for delivery will close on Monday, August 10th at 12pm. Our final scheduled pick-ups will be available Thursday, August 13th.

To Order a PPE Kit: visit www.tipsf.org/ppe or call (415) 593-8113. Additionally, detailed information is embedded as text below.

Thank you for helping us spread the word, so that we may reach as many residents with disabilities as possible.

Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) Available for San Francisco Residents with Disabilities

WHO:

This PPE is prioritized for residents with disabilities who are not IHSS recipients or receiving PPE support from another nonprofit provider, IHSS or an SF City Department. If you are currently receiving PPE from another non-profit agency, IHSS or an SF City department, please continue to work with that agency so we can ensure these supplies go to those who are not connected and who need them most.
