Harbor Freight announced that they will be donating their entire supply of N95 masks, face shields and nitrile gloves.

They said they will be providing 24-hour emergency rooms in their local communities with these supplies. If you work at a hospital with a 24-hour emergency room in need of these items, please ask the office in charge of procurement at your hospital to fill out the information on this link.

You can also email and identify the hospital’s city and state in the subject line, and their team will follow-up.

They are asking that you do not make requests at your local store or call center - and they urge you not to contact hospitals.

"Although we certainly won’t have enough of these supplies to fill everyone’s needs, we’re going to donate everything we’ve got. We also recognize that there are so many other critically important people responding to this crisis and that there is need everywhere. We’ve chosen to focus our efforts on hospitals with a 24 hour emergency room with the hope that we can help as many people as possible right now," CEO and founder Eric Smith said.
