Want to Donate PPE?

The Arizona Coalition for Emergency Response (AzCHER), a federally funded program of AzHHA, is facilitating the exchange of in-kind (i.e., non-financial) healthcare resources of all sorts, not just PPE. The process works in this way:

  1. Healthcare facilities needing supplies, equipment, or other goods/service can complete a resource request form through the AzCHER website here. Submit the completed form to [email protected].

  2. AzCHER staff populate the resource request log located on the website here.

  3. When a potential donor contacts AzCHER with goods or services to contribute, they are directed to the resource request log noted above.  The donor is urged to contact a facility having a matching need directly.

AzCHER does not accept or store any supplies or equipment, but rather encourages the direct interaction between donors and healthcare recipients.
