Guam’s healthcare workers need our help.
We’re working with GMH, GRMC and first responders to make Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to fill shortages until traditional supply chains can meet demand.
Please donate unused PPE, or help by making them from home.
We have the designs, we have the demand.
Now we just need you.
Help protect Guam's frontline healthcare workers with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
Donate unused PPE
Currently, highest needs are: N95 face masks (or any types of medical masks), scrubs, shower caps, medical face shields, and medical-grade disinfectant.
Donate by calling Guam Civil Defense (475-9600), GRMC (645-5500), or contact us (686-1699, PPEforGuam@gmail.com) and we'll direct you.
Donate funds to make PPE
Visit our GoFundMe at https://www.gofundme.com/f/PPEforGuam.
100% of donations will be used to provide PPE to local hospitals, first responders, charities and others in need.
Calling all crafters and makers!
Please fill our our volunteer questionnaire. Then download one of the following PDFs and get started!

Do you have a 3D printer?
Face shield instructions
More designs will be added in the near future, as they get approved. If you have ideas, please share them with us on facebook or email them to us.
Due to a nationwide shortage in Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), the CDC recommends making homemade PPE as a last resort.
