President and CEO of Project C.U.R.E, Dr. Douglas Jackson, got started 35 years ago in his mom and dad's garage. Now he is helping people all over the country. This pandemic now prompts him to "pivot 180 degrees to help the people always helping us." To augment the supply of PPE over the past months, Project C.U.R.E. has conducted supply drives across the U.S. These efforts have provided 66 pallets of donated medical supplies that have been distributed to health care systems in the U.S. Beyond the donations secured through the collection drives for local communities, Project C.U.R.E. has delivered over 271 shipments of medical supplies and equipment, including ventilators, throughout the United States. That is over 6,400 boxes of medical supplies from Project C.U.R.E. distribution centers worth over $3,000,000.
While on-air with Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, Jackson tells Elvis they created a spreadsheet on their website and told people to fill out a form to see what's difficult to get to their hospital. The most needed supplies they are getting? "For awhile it was masks," says Jackson, however now the hospitals are in much need for gowns. "surgical gowns, isolation gowns, we're working on getting all the gowns." However he warns that we're probably going to be short on masks again when we get out of quarantine. He claims everyday people will want to use masks when they go to the stores, to help boost our economy, and it will cause less masks to be able to get to the hospital.
