Healthcare workers are putting their lives on the line to keep us safe. Help us help them.

Orange County United Way is partnering with the Nailing It For Health Care Workers initiative to help bring much-needed protective equipment to our local healthcare workers, grocery store employees and other front-line service providers who are protecting our most vulnerable neighbors as we are united in confronting the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic together.

Tam Nguyen, Orange County United Way’s Board Co-Chair and CEO of Advance Beauty College, helped kick off the Nailing It For Health Care Workers initiative, a volunteer effort led by several professionals and businesses in O.C. to donate personal protective equipment (PPE) to healthcare workers. At that time, 120,000 face masks, more than 300,000 gloves, and other much-needed personal protective equipment were delivered to healthcare workers in 40 hospitals and medical clients in Orange County in just 10 days.

Still, more PPE supplies are needed for healthcare workers across Orange County hospitals, nursing homes, assisted-living facilities and other essential front-line service provider facilities.

Nailing It For Healthcare Workers in actionMore than 15 restaurant owners also joined the initiative to deliver freshly prepared, packaged meals to healthcare workers. With a surge of patients expected, it is unlikely healthcare workers will have time or the ability to prepare and eat meals regularly. These donated meals are one less thing for them to worry about, and is another essential element for their continued well-being.

Orange County United Way has partnered with Nailing It For Health Care Workers to expand this initiative, opening up the opportunity for more businesses and community members who want to help O.C. healthcare workers.

These essential healthcare workers are putting their lives on the line for us – let’s unite to support them!

Donate to support health care workers

For questions or if you have PPE and supplies to donate, please contact Doug McKay, Director, Engagement Strategy at (949)263-6125 or via email.
