This very timely and hopefully powerful new initiative came to us through our relationships in the wine world and we wanted to share it with a broader audience because we know that people in industries beyond wine can quickly lean in and be helpful here too.
Healthcare workers are being asked to do more than ever before and the vast majority don’t have the protection and supplies that they need. I think we’ve all heard this story daily.
Winery and vineyard workers use masks, gloves, and goggles during certain work related activities. In the Northwest, where Nocking Point is based, many vineyards and wineries have already begun to donate their excess stock of these critical items to official drop locations so that healthcare workers can use them immediately to keep themselves and everyone around them as safe as possible.
FindTheMasks.com was set up by a team in Seattle to help connect industry with these healthcare workers in need so that if you’re a vineyard manager, you own a winery, you’re a farmer, you’re a painter, or you’re anyone else who uses these same supplies in your business, you can quickly learn how and where to safely drop off your extra supply and support the doctors, nurses, and all healthcare staff who need them most right now.
Agencies and hospitals at all levels are competing to get their hands on these crucial supplies and that leads to far too many of our brave and critical workers going without the proper protection they need.
If you think you can help go to FindTheMasks.com to see how and where to donate and drop supplies. And share this post please in hopes that it reaches someone who can lend a helping hand. Please use the hashtags below in your post!
