Urgent Need: Donation of Personal Protective Equipment

On behalf of Yale New Haven Health System, Dr. Mridu Gulati, M.D., M.P.H., faculty member at Yale Pulmonary & Critical Care (lung and intensive-care unit) — mother of Middle Schooler Ishaan Bhaskar ’26 and Lower Schooler Rehaan Bhaskar ’28 — is making this appeal to the Brunswick community:

I am writing as a Brunswick mother and a faculty member at Yale Pulmonary and Critical Care (lung and intensive care unit) physician. As you know, there is a desperate shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) in the U.S. healthcare system that is putting healthcare professionals at increased risk of infectious exposure. This could limit the number of healthcare professionals at the time when we need them the most. 
 
Yale New Haven Health System is no exception. We are soliciting donations of PPE for Yale. We are in urgent need of the following, in original, unopened packaging:
    • Disposable head covers/caps
    • Disposable gowns
    • N95 respirator face masks
    • Powered air-purifying respirators (PAPRs)
    • Disposable face masks
    • Face shields/goggles
    • Coveralls/scrubs
    • Shoe covers
    • Disinfecting wipes & liquids
    • General-purpose hand cleaners
Many facilities and companies stock these items. I am asking for your assistance in reaching out to the Brunswick family to resource their own networks for possible donations of the above. 
 
Those able to donate should email DonationsPPE@ynhh.org and copy me at mridu.gulati@yale.edu.
 
It is communities like ours that will help us get through this.
 
Thank you!
