The non-profit Get Mankato PPE exists under the umbrella of the Mankato Area Foundation, and exists to provide PPE (personal protection equipment) free of charge to those living and working in a 60 mile radius of Mankato. Observing the COVID19 crisis of insufficient PPE, and the volunteers lacking leadership or a local authority on home manufacture of PPE, Get Mankato PPE sees an opportunity to bring together donors and volunteers while refocusing the public on how to help with homemade PPE.

Get Mankato PPE exists to mobilize and utilize an army of volunteers to manufacture CDC compliant PPE (personal protection equipment), bring in donations to fund the purchase of CDC approved materials, and clearly communicate with the community the urgency of adhering to the CDC standards.

Every relief effort needs all types of people.

All skill levels encouraged and appreciated.
