Our maker support for this project is growing quickly, with about 30 makers and over 40 printers now dedicated to this project! Volunteers are stepping up to help with logistics, collecting finished frames/shields and distributing the daily deliveries of filament and other materials.
The word is getting out now, and we have committed donations to 6 area hospitals in addition to a couple in New Jersey that I’ll be shipping out to tomorrow.
Today we collected 380 new face shields from the support team making them over the past few days!!! This equates to well over 150 shields per day, or a total of nearly 500 produced since this effort started on Monday. We will be making very frequent deliveries to the hospitals in need shortly.
Mission Hospital (the first delivery from yesterday) shared a photo with us of their docs already using the shields. He gave some very valuable feedback and was thrilled with the shields. They are getting 100 more tomorrow.
All of us contributing to this project are thrilled to be making such a huge difference, and we are doing it thanks to your support on GFM!
