CRITICAL DONATIONS NEEDED FOR COVID-19 RESPONSE
MHI is closely monitoring information regarding COVID-19 caused by the novel Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 and its impact on material handling, logistics and supply chain operations.

MHI is coordinating with the American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN) on supply chain continuity and critical healthcare resources in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. ALAN is working with multiple government and private sector organizations including Healthcare Ready to strengthen healthcare supply chains through collaboration with public health and private sectors.

Currently, there is a dire shortage of personal protective equipment and cleaning and disinfecting supplies. We are asking any company who has these supplies on hand to donate them to Healthcare Ready or your local hospital if you are able:

–Protective face masks
–N95 respirators
–Protective gloves
–Face shields
–Protective goggles,
–Cleaning and disinfecting supplies
 
If you are able to donate any of these items, visit the Healthcare Ready donation form at https://hub.bio.org/, the ALAN donation form at https://www.alanaid.org/offerinkind/ or email Carol Miller (cmiller@mhi.org) at MHI and we can put you in touch with ALAN
