Many Central Florida charities are in desperate need during these times. Please consider providing any relief possible. Here is who and how you can help!
Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health is in need of PPE due to shortages for frontline staff and foster families.
- Sew face masks and/or other protective gear. Put your sewing skills to work, following this pattern: https://youtu.be/87EEfUGQA6k so that the Devereux team can insert N95s or other CDC-approved filter material inside the pouch to optimize usage of limited supply and minimize risk of COVID19.
- Create PPE (e.g., goggles and face shields) via 3-D printers. If you have access to 3D printers, join our efforts by following specifications for this prototype: https://www.prusaprinters.org/prints/25857-prusa-protective-face-shield-rc2/ to create face shields to help protect the health and safety of Devereux team members.
