Would you also be surprised to find out that sparklers in 2019 caused the most injuries by firework type and accounts for 12% of all firework injuries overall according to the 2019 Consumer Product Safety Commission Fireworks Annual Report.

COVID-19 Supply Donation Request

Mar 27, 2020

Dear Heart of America Members,

As you know, healthcare professionals… doctors, nurses, paramedics, EMT’s… are in desperate need of personal protective equipment, and their supplies are either dwindling or completely exhausted. I’ve been in contact with several of our healthcare HOA members, and they are reporting the same challenges.

With many businesses temporarily shut down, we’re asking whether your organization has extra PPE that isn’t being used, or if you know of a source that has a stockpile (or even a handful) that can be repurposed for our first responders and hospitals. In particular, they’re needing:

  • N95 respirators
  • Medical gowns
  • Face shields
