Bay Area update!
Published on May 1, 2020 by Elizabeth Yin

Dear friends,

As Lan mentioned in a prior update, we are so thankful for all your support! These are challenging times for many people, so we especially appreciate your generosity in getting masks to the frontlines.

I want to give you a quick update of where these N95 masks have gone to date in the SF Bay Area:

  • Santa Clara Valley Medical Center and affiliates (
  • Mills Peninsula Hospital
  • Stanford Hospital Emergency Department
  • El Camino Hospital
  • San Jose fire department: stations #26 and #34

We are still awaiting additional masks in transit, so if you have requests of where you think these masks are most needed, we are very open to suggestions. As the SF Bay Area continues to improve in COVID-19 cases, we will largely be refocusing our efforts on areas with greater need such as the NYC area (see Marjorie's update).
