Shields are in transit all across America! Shipments of face shields to Brooklyn NY, Ramsey NJ, Boston MA, and Chicago IL are all arriving to the healthcare workers in need over the next couple days. Of course, local deliveries are carrying on as we approach 1000 shields delivered (and close to 2000 produced).
Our volunteer team grows every day! Whether looking to help friends or family on the front lines, motivated to compete with other team members for most shield production, or simply having stay-at-home boredom and looking for something to occupy themselves, volunteers are making parts and assembling shields at a record pace.
With that comes bulk purchasing of raw materials and distribution of those materials; later this week a large order of 4000 plastic sheets are coming in!
Today in photos, we are featuring Jess, a friend and colleague who assembled 100 shields to be delivered to UCI (University of California Irvine) hospital, as well as our youngest builders who recently celebrated their milestone of 100 shields created. Go team!
