Unity Bands Inc. is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization supporting low-income healthcare workers and providing credible public health information to at-risk communities.

Join this incredible team spanning nine states with over $16,000 in donations.


Why are we doing this? The underpaid but essential health care workforce in America comprises nearly 7 million people in low-paid health jobs including health care support workers, direct care workers, and health care service workers. According to Brookings, over 80% of health care support, service, and direct care workers are women and are also disproportionately people of color. Charitable dollars from the community typically wane within the initial three to six months after a disaster (issuelab.org). In the case of COVID-19, media attention has shifted to other topics. Spreading awareness about the challenges healthcare workers are facing and the community support are two ways Unity Bands can help right now based on a recent survey conducted. "Continue supporting us. Just the little things that bring a smile and can make things better," said one healthcare worker.

Mission Statement

Proudly support low-income health care heroes and provide credible public health information to at risk-communities.

Description

  • 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization
  • The idea for Unity Bands, an all-volunteer, nonprofit project, manifested in March 2020 as stay-at-home orders were enacted across the country and around the world. In December 2020, Unity Bands Founder and President, John Schirrippa, worked with a Brazilian graphics designer to create the memorable, green Unity Bands logo representing the nonprofit’s ethos: hope, fight and unity.
  • Thus far, Unity Bands has sold 2,000 wristbands to individuals and organizations in 13 states and three countries, and donated over $15,000 to five medical facilities across New York, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Alabama. We’ve partnered with multiple organizations and individuals to raise funds through the sale of wristbands, restaurant givebacks, raffles, and sports giveaways.
