PPE (Personal Protective Equipment):

PFW aims to provide community support in emergency situations through harm reduction tools and health promotion, including the provision of personal protective equipment (PPE) to areas of need. Volunteers at PFW make a variety of PPE, including masks, scrub caps, laundry bags, earsavers, and isolation gowns. Volunteers choose which type of PPE they would like to make, depending on their skill and comfort levels. Volunteers are welcome to make a variety of the listed PPE as well.


PFW purchases some materials, and also receives lots of material donations from the community. While volunteers are welcome to use their own materials, PFW can provide materials as well. Materials and sewing kits may be picked up at PFW hubs (more information below). Sewing kits (such as mask kits and scrub cap kits) come with everything needed to make a certain number of the specific PPE. To request specific materials, please fill out the form on our website, here.
