We are extremely excited to announce that we have received $16,000 in funding from our friends at GetUsPPE.org! GetUsPPE is an organization dedicated to providing PPE to healthcare workers. They have received over 12,400 requests and delivered over 2,000,000 units of PPE. Visit GetUsPPE.org to learn more about our newest partner!
What this means for us.
Currently, united3D has received orders for close to 3,000 units of PPE. We will now be able to fulfill these orders quickly, and continue to move forward. We are planning on expanding into more regions, and based off of our current figures, we have the capability to produce around 3,000 units of PPE from our new funds (after reimbursing our volunteers and paying for the current backorders).
How you can help.
The best way to help right now is to spread the word. We are looking for more volunteers with 3D printers, and our Sewing Project requires more materials. We also would like to get in contact with local businesses to see if they would like to receive some PPE as they start to open up. Any amount of publicity for our organization is greatly appreciated!
Our next steps.
We plan on working closely with our partners to fulfill our larger orders. Once we receive some more orders, we also have some options to help speed up the production process. Our volunteers will be crucial in this process; as we continue to grow, the support of our volunteers remains overwhelming, and we cannot wait to see what we do next. Thank you for your support, and we hope you continue to stay safe!
