Thank you for your interest in assisting in these unprecedented times!
In support of our communities medical professionals, our goal to is to get good information on Vetted PPE design out to those in the design and Maker community with fabrication equipment and an eagerness to help to get safe and effective PPE into the hands of those who are working their hardest to keep us all safe and healthy.
To accomplish this we have consolidated a list of fabrication equipment, materials, available volunteers, and volunteer opportunities to help in the production of community-made PPE in the greater Boston area. This information can be viewed on the interactive map below.
If you are interested in volunteering to help produce PPE, refer to the map for the locations of opportunities in our area and information on signup requirements. If you wish to add resources of your own to this interface, please use the "Add Resource" tab on the map below.
