COLORADO SPRINGS — The Pikes Peak Regional Office of Emergency is accepting unused personal protective equipment to distribute among local hospitals, long-term care facilities, first responders and hospice.

Items can be dropped off on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Pikes Peak Regional Office of Emergency Management located at 3755 Mark Dabling in Colorado Springs.

The following unused items will be accepted:
· Eye protection & goggles
· Face shields
· Surgical masks
· Sterile & non-sterile gloves
· Disposable gowns
· N95 Masks
· Sanitation Wipes
· Personal Wipes

On March 29, Project C.U.R.E. along with Colorado Springs' Health Systems and the Rocky Mountain Vibes Baseball team, held a PPE drive at UCHealth park.

Project C.U.R.E also hosted a PPE drive with the Denver Broncos and received 27 full pallets of donated medical supplies.

After donations are made, donors are asked to request a donation receipt vs. getting one handed to them in-person to prevent transmission. You can click here to do that.

Call (719) 373-5874 to arrange pickups of larger donations that cannot be dropped off during the times listed.

Volunteers will be separated a safe distance apart and they are happy to unload the donations without the donor leaving the car. All PPE drives will be staffed with an on-site medical professional to ensure we are taking the proper precautions to keep ourselves as well as our donors safe.
