Bank of America recently provided over 225,000 PPE’s (Adult Disposable Mask’s, Children’s Mask’s, Hand Sanitizer, Isolation Gowns and Latex Glove) to Donate Delaware for distribution in our most vulnerable communities, bringing the total PPE provided by Bank of America locally to nearly 500,000 to help address coronavirus related health care disparities.  In partnership with local nonprofits across the country, Bank of America has distributed more than 25 million masks as part of its ongoing efforts to address health-related disparities accelerated by the coronavirus.

Donate Delaware partners with the University of Delaware by supplying 600 pairs of latex gloves and 15 canisters of wipes. The University of Delaware is running vaccination clinics on campus for employees who are on campus (mostly essential personnel). This is a partnership with the State of Delaware. The University of Delaware is also looking to partner with New Castle County on a drive-through vaccination clinic.

Donate Delaware supports the great work of the Latin American Community Center by supplying 2,500 Adult Disposable Masks and 1,200 Child Disposable Masks. The mission of the Latin American Community Center is to empower the Latino Community through education, advocacy, partnerships and exceptional services. The agency vision is to eliminate the achievement gap for Latino’s in Delaware.

Donate Delaware has a ‘’request form’’ on their website donatedelaware.org to be completed by organizations and communities throughout the state. As part of its outreach, Donate Delaware volunteers will work with nonprofit and community leaders to ensure that the PPE’s reach the most vulnerable populations as well as frontline workers, senior homes, schools and health centers.
