Last Mile #NYCPPE delivers life saving PPE to frontline workers. Our group consists of healthcare workers, organizers, technologists and concerned neighbors. We are committed to continue flattening the curve, helping communities most impacted by the virus, and keeping hospitals below patient capacity. We work in partnership with local groups who help us reach those in greatest need and risk.
We are part of the greater Last Mile network of local volunteers and like-minded organizations in communities across the country addressing the "last mile" challenge of getting life saving PPE directly into the hands of frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic
We have seven local Last Mile groups across the USA in San Diego, Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, New Orleans, and with Return2TheHeart Foundation we reach 50 tribal nations and pueblos through regional hubs in Rapid City, SD, Klamath, CA, Santa fe, NM , Traverse City, MI, Apache Junction, Arizona, and Hilo, HI.
