Who are we?

Connecticut PPE Drive is a group of medical trainees (nursing, physician associate, and medical students) and advocates from all over Connecticut working to help our colleagues on the frontlines. We are collecting personal protective equipment (PPE) donations on behalf of our local community hospitals and schools.

Our goals are to contact local businesses to procure protective equipment donations and to spread the word about the PPE shortage. Additionally, we are fundraising and purchasing protective equipment to donate to in-need healthcare centers. 


Our initiative is officially affiliated with GetUsPPE.

#GetUsPPE is a national non-profit organization that has delivered over 1 million pieces of PPE nationwide. Together, we are empowering and elevating the opportunities to deliver as much PPE as possible to our community hospitals and care facilities.
