Language

Vote to purchase materials for the production of PPE for medical professionals, COVID frontline workers or at-risk individuals, up to $1000 dollars. These funds shall cover plastics, elastic, or other materials to be used directly for the manufacture of face shields, face masks or other protective equipment that will be given free of charge.

Background

Greater Chicago area hospitals are experiencing PPE shortages and are asking that individuals and businesses with 3D printing capabilities print face shields for them. At PS1, even while we remain closed, a small number of volunteers have been tending 3D printers as they print face shields. Currently the shields that we have 3D printed have gone to Swedish Covenant, Mount Sanai, St Benard and more. We have printed and donated 1000+ to date. There are other hospitals and first responders that are still in need of face shields and other PPE.

All other expenses related to production and printer upkeep is to come out of the 3D printer budget, as approved by the area host.
