Things are accelerating quickly! I am now running a network of 19 enthusiastic individuals in the LA area with a total of 30 printers!! A large number of students and hobbyists have joined our team from all over LA and Orange County, including individuals from Cal Poly Pomona, CSULB, 5 different FIRST Robotics teams. In addition to printing, team members are now helping to take charge of hospital outreach, materials distribution/collection, and assembly.
Tomorrow is our first official delivery of 100 finished Face Shields to Mission Hospital in Laguna Beach. This is a major milestone — but will soon just be a drop in the bucket, as we anticipate a potential manufacturing capacity of up to 150 shields PER DAY!
2 other area hospitals have also approved receipt of these shields and are in desperate need. So our network is growing very quickly.
The donations so far have been unbelievably helpful. The funds are fueling the supply chain that I have been putting together to ensure *daily* receipt of new raw material and is going to quick work to make delivery of this equipment possible! Thanks to all of you!
