Warren County asking for personal protective equipment donations for health care facilities

WARREN COUNTY, NJ – Warren County government is asking businesses to donate supplies needed by area health care facilities due to COVID-19.

“More than ever, we must do all that we can to protect our healthcare professionals who are putting themselves at risk to care for those affected by COVID-19,” said Freeholder James R. Kern III, health and public safety liaison.

Personal protective items being sought are:

  • Surgical Masks
  • N95 Respirators
  • Disposable Gowns
  • Disposable Face Shields
  • Eye protectors
  • Nitrile Gloves
  • Latex Gloves
  • Antiseptic Wipes
  • HEPA Filters / Air Scrubbers

Businesses such as nail salons, barber shops and hair salons, dental offices, and any other business that can supply these products – particularly ones that are closed temporarily – could help fight the shortage of these items by donating them now.

Business owners can contact the Warren County Office of Emergency Management at 908-835-2070 to arrange a donation of these supplies.

Businesses should “donate, but don’t deplete” their supplies, County Administrator Alex Lazorisak said, as the County wants businesses to be able to reopen when the time comes.
