Thank you for contacting Global Links.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Global Links is supporting our region’s healthcare “safety net”, prioritizing front-line healthcare workers who serve residents of Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Washington and Westmoreland Counties.


Global Links is able to provide limited quantities of essential personal protective equipment (PPE) to community healthcare and human service workers and their at-risk residents/patients. We update the form as quantities/sizes and other items are available. At this time, Global Links can specifically offer:


  • Emergency cloth face masks
  • Baby diapers, wipes and cream
  • Incontinence Supplies

  • Infrared thermometers (available at cost to non-profit organizations)


Global Links is currently out of stock on all types of gloves due to world-wide supply chain issues related to COVID-19.  We do not have a timeline when they will be available.

Further details regarding each available product are provided within the application. Global Links may be able to provide small quantities of other related clinical and consumer health supplies by request on a case by case basis. 


Please carefully evaluate your organization's immediate supply need for one month. Organizations are encouraged to make monthly requests rather than attempting to stockpile supplies.


Priority is given to:

  • Free and charitable healthcare centers, including FQHCs

  • Shelters and emergency housing facilities

  • Human and social service agencies working with high-risk populations (i.e. seniors, individuals with preexisting conditions, individuals with a physical or intellectual disability, etc.)

  • Child care facilities


Please let us know what your urgent needs are and we will do our best to help.

Emergency Face Masks Request Sheet


Manufactured in a facility which produces hospital textiles and linens, the emergency face mask can be worn in environments where masking is critical but surgical masks are not necessary. The face mask should be laundered before use and can be re-laundered as needed.
  • The face mask cover is a non-PPE product and is designed to be used by non-front line personnel in settings where they are unlikely to encounter disease causing pathogens.
  • The face mask can also be used as a cover for N95 respirator masks to prolong usage.
  • The face mask cover is NOT intended to provide protection against transmission of the COVID-19 virus. Rather, they address emergency needs designed to help healthcare providers manage the extremely limited supply of PPE.
