The sacrifices individuals in the medical field are making each and every day to save lives show remarkable strength and passion for what they do, and we want to do what we can to protect those who are on the front lines. Thank you to the physicians, nurses, and clinicians all working tirelessly on the front lines nationally. You inspire us with your commitment and we are incredibly grateful for your dedication!
Face Shield Donation
With donations from Crawford Industries and Systematics Inc, Blueprints For Pangaea was able to distribute nearly 700 face shields to medical clinics and social support services in the Washtenaw area.
Face shields are an important and reusable component of PPE and offer protection to these essential workers and the underserved communities they work with. By mitigating the risk of viral transmission, these organizations will be able to expand their local impact to more populations.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible: Crawford Industries, Systematics Inc, Blueprints For Pangaea Covid-19 Outreach Team, Packard Health, Hope Clinic, North American Dental Group, the SafeHouse Center, and the JFS of Washtenaw County.
Michigan Medicine and Beaumont
Net worth: $9,000 +
With the help of a few amazing volunteers, we were able to donate six boxes of much needed personal protective equipment and other resources to Michigan Medicine and Beaumont Health, containing $9,000+ worth of essential PPE.
We’re beyond fortunate to be able to help medical professionals putting their lives at risk, and each and every one of us can help mitigate the impact of COVID-19 by continuing to practice social distancing and maintaining cleanliness. Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible: University of Michigan, Phi Delta Epsilon Medical Fraternity - MI Delta, and our Novi High School volunteering club.
In an effort to help individuals protect themselves and their peers, we started an education campaign to help communities create their own masks. According to the CDC, "cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low cost can be used as an additional, voluntary public health measure."
In this document, we outline all the resources necessary to make surgical masks from scratch as well as locations that are actively accepting donations of masks. We hope that we can all do our part to help fight this pandemic together.
Supporting Ann Arbor and Detroit
We recognize that COVID-19 has also impacted individuals beyond the medical field. In an effort to assist these communities, Blueprints is working to donate PPE to nonprofits within the Ann Arbor and Detroit area. If you are interested in assisting our organization through this process or would like to make a donation, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your care and support!
