The #SavetheFrontline mission is to purchase, consolidate and distribute personal protective equipment (PPE) to healthcare workers and face coverings to underserved and at-risk communities.
COVID-19 is disproportionately impacting low-income and at-risk communities. Social-distancing is unavailable to those living by the paycheck, working in essential jobs, and dwelling in packed apartment buildings. Frontline fighters in public healthcare facilities — committed to serving all New Yorkers — struggle to save NY’s most vulnerable communities — and protect themselves. By creating accessible, safe, and visible distribution channels and pick-up locations through partnerships with local community centers, health clinics, religious institutions, food banks, and homeless shelters, #SavetheFrontline seeks to mitigate existing inequities and help stem the fast-moving and deadly spread of COVID-19.
It is our fundamental and moral responsibility to ensure the equitable care and preservation of our diverse and underserved communities — especially now.
It is who we are.
We are NY Strong.
