MAKE A DONATION
Join the Movement
Healthcare professionals come to work every day to care for us and our loved ones. We believe they should be able to do their job without putting themselves and their families at risk. That’s why we, the Executive MBA class of 2021 at Northwestern Kellogg School of Management started Every Hero Needs a Shield.
Just as they will continue to make an impact with their healthcare efforts, we will continue to do what we can to get PPE in the hands that need it most. Join us in our fight to shield those on the front lines. 100% of your donation goes to PPE.
We are procuring face shields from a supplier in central Illinois and distributing them to frontline healthcare workers. To date, we fundraised enough for 11,700 face shields and they will be distributed to front line workers. We are continuing to identify other reliable and affordable face shields suppliers and sources.
The source track will provide us immediate PPE resources. However, we anticipate a time when sourcing might no longer be an option. Thus, we are mobilizing a parallel effort to scale up manufacturing options.
