First, a huge “thank you” to those institutions that have already provided personal protective equipment (PPE) to address the critical shortage in hospitals around the state. The Attorney General’s office and healthcare providers are grateful for the generosity shown by colleges and universities.

However, the urgent need for PPEs remains. To that end, the Massachusetts Health and Hospitals Association has provided us with a list (see below) of items that are currently needed. If you have any of the below items on campus and are able to donate them to the effort, please contact Brad Freeman, vice president for Government Relations of AICUM and we will connect you with the best way to get the supplies where they are needed most.
