Dear UC San Diego Friends and Family,


During this unprecedented time, non-essential UC San Diego personnel will be working offsite.

Join us in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

While UC San Diego Health is successfully managing its supplies as responsible stewards of its resources, we are also asking all researchers and relevant facilities, individuals and organizations to help alleviate the shortage in San Diego by making key equipment and materials available to UC San Diego Health.

Personal protective equipment (PPE) are critically important, specifically:

  • Medical-grade procedure and surgical masks
  • Surgical and isolation / protective gowns
  • Arm sleeves
  • Goggles, eye shields and face shields

Donated items are tax deductible. Please include a copy of the Donated Goods Form with your donation, or Make a tax-deductible gift to the UC San Diego COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund .For more information on the above, please contact Melanie Cruz
