Sonoma County is encouraging the public, businesses and organizations to donate new, unused personal protective equipment to assist first responders, health care providers, and health care facilities responding to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

“We are facing an unprecedented public health emergency, and the increasing demands of our health care system is contributing to shortages in personal protective supplies,” said Susan Gorin, Chair of the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors. “Protecting and supporting the needs of our first responders and health care workers is critical to safeguarding the health of our community during this crisis. We are urging the community to make donations of personal protective gear so that we can preserve the health and vitality of our frontline responders.”  

Any individual who can donate personal protective equipment can donate supplies to The Salvation Army. Corporate donations are being coordinated by the County Emergency Operations Center.
