Global Links Southwest PA COVID-19 
Community Partners Request Form

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. We are a non-profit medical surplus recovery organization.

 

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 this form as quantities/sizes and other items are available. At this time, Global Links can specifically offer:


  • Emergency cloth face masks
  • Full face shields
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Bleach
  • Baby diapers

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.

Organizations are encouraged to make monthly requests rather than attempting to stockpile supplies or make multiple requests in a short time frame.


Priority is given to non-profit organizations that are:

  • 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.)


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

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.
