The following opportunities are available for those who wish to assist during the COVID-19 crisis.
Palms Neighbor to Neighbor
Do you have a 3D printer or other manufacturing, 3D modeling, engineering, or other applicable skills? All throughout Los Angeles, makers are helping to provide Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) to our medical professionals. Head over to CrashSpace.org (located on Venice in Palms) to see how you can help.
Do you own a small business with manufacturing capabilities? Head over to LAProtects.org to submit to volunteer to make essential protective gear (PPE).
Are you a sewer? You can help, too! Elder care facilities and others need cloth masks that are not medical grade. If you would like to make masks, go to LAFilmMaskMakers.com to connect with groups who are making masks and distributing them to those in need!
