Contributions of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

We have been gratified by the number of offers we have received to contribute PPE to our colleagues in the Health System. The Procurement Office is currently focused on the following items:

  • N95 masks
  • Face masks including ear-loop masks
  • Latex-free gloves (all sizes)
  • Face shields

We are working with our sponsors to determine how to best identify and document these contributions. Significant contributions of supplies that were originally purchased using sponsor or institutional funds should be documented by PIs/grant administrators using the Providing Essential Supplies for COVID-19 Support tracking form.

We would greatly prefer that you bring the PPE to the central collection site at Classroom 3 on the 3rd floor of Trent Semans. This building – like all Duke Health buildings at this time – requires badge access for entry. If the classroom is locked, please deposit your supplies outside the classroom. The area is monitored by video to ensure that your contributions are secure, and Procurement staff collect provisions multiple times each day. If you are unable to move the PPE yourself and need assistance, please email researchprocurement@duke.edu or 
Elizabeth.norwood@duke.edu to make alternative plans.
