We are in need of face shield production volunteers who want to help healthcare workers!

We are currently 3D-printing and assembling reusable face shields during the pandemic, that keep clear, in the efforts to help essential workers in skilled nursing facilities, clinics, hospice care, home health teams, school districts, and in public service non-profits and government. This piece of equipment has been standard for healthcare workers, to prevent the spread of the virus within hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, and now,---some educators of young children as well as at opening school districts----- all of whom cannot use physical distance to do their work.
To date, PVNet has already given 7000+ face shields to essential workers at:

  • 15+ hospitals
  • 45 skilled nursing facilities
  • The Navajo Nation (in partnership with SHEworldhealth.org)
  • COVID-19 testing clinics, medical centers, police departments and first responders throughout LA County.
Our goal is to make more for at least 20 more skilled nursing facilities across Southern California.. ---many of whom are now, designated to help with COVID-19 outpatient recovery. We also hope to help and hospice teams, small clinics, 5 school districts, and hopefully 15,000 people in public service by the end of the our project, with your help!
