Like always, we would like to thank our incredible donors and partners for their consistent support. It’s been a long run, starting from 1 hospital with minimal funding, and now after these hard 3 months, united3D has brought more hope to hospitals, senior homes, and businesses. Reminding them that we are here to help, we have delivered over 1450 units of PPE to these centers across 7 states. Our volunteers are hard at work to fulfill our orders across the 9 states, but it’s going to take some time. We are still looking to raise funding, but our current funding has reached over $18400! We really appreciate the work our volunteers do to accomplish milestones like these. We are also looking into spreading further into providing different types of PPE like gowns, goggles, and N95 masks. More information will soon be distributed.
This week, we have continued to work on fulfilling our orders. We are working on increasing the Sewing Project orders and working with larger manufacturers to increase production rates. We are looking to expand our reach into upstate New York and further down Virginia and North Carolina in hopes of providing PPE to even more hospitals. The best way to help right now is by spreading the word to help increase the number of orders we receive and to recruit more volunteers with 3D printers. We are also considering helping schools with our PPE to ensure the safety of students as the school year comes closer and reopening plans proceed.
As with all community-based operations, our organization relies on the generosity of our donors. We could not be here today if it wasn’t for the individuals who have provided us with funding to continue supporting our communities. Let us know if you have any contacts at local hospitals and we will gladly connect with them to figure out their needs. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us and we’d be happy to help. Until the next update, stay safe and healthy!
