Virginia Beach Accepting Donations of Personal Protective Equipment for its COVID-19 Response

Wednesday, April 01, 2020

​In response to offers from residents and businesses to donate supplies, the City now has a formal donations process to receive personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect our emergency responders and other frontline employees supporting the COVID-19 pandemic response.

Ideally, the PPE supplies should be commercial-grade and in original packaging. Items needed include, but are not limited to:

  • Disinfecting cleaner approved for COVID use
  • Eye protection (glasses and goggles)
  • Fluid and droplet hair protection
  • Hand sanitizer
  • N95 Masks – large, medium, small, universal
  • Nitrile Gloves – XL, large, medium, small
  • Protective Gowns (prefer moisture barrier / level 3)
  • Surgical mask with or without Fluid Shield Protection
  • Surgical shoe covers

To donate, businesses and residents should complete this Donation Form instead of dropping items off with City agencies. Staff will review donations offered and arrange for drop-off or pick-up of the items.

The City of Virginia Beach is looking to set up an official donation reception center soon. More information will be shared as it is available.
