Philosophy department seeks to help with donations for COVID 19

As our hospitals and clinics fill up with Coronavirus patients, many are short of equipment necessary to protect patients, nurses, doctors, and technicians from getting infected, and from spreading that infection to others.

To help get medical equipment donations to the people on the front lines - N95 protective masks, gloves, face shields, medical goggles, protective suits (not homemade) – Ruiqi Yin (a philosophy major), Mark Sentesy (a philosophy professor), and Maureen Sentesy Wagner (a nurse) have set up a donation process to get medical equipment to hospitals and clinics in need.

So far, the Penn State community has donated over 4200 pieces of equipment, and over $1600 to get more. Most donated equipment is already at clinics and hospitals. Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far!

If you have supplies to donate, you can contact Mark at sentesybc@gmail.com and drop them at our address.

If you wish to send donations yourself, here's how to get medical equipment to people who need it:
