EBPPE Aug/Sept Newsletter



Chloe Jeon (12th, Amador Valley High School)

In August, we donated 300 masks to Creating New Hope to help with their PPE distribution at the Dublin Farmer's Market. Giving out much-needed PPE to seniors was another great experience. We helped out our school district's staff members, too.

In September, we donated our PPE to Fremont Senior Center and the Fremont Fire Department. Donating to the Fire Department felt particularly meaningful this time, especially with so many wildfires this year, in addition to the pandemic. We were all struggling to cope with poor air quality, and for some, even lost homes, and these firefighters were working so hard and taking so many risks to help keep us safe.

It was exciting being able to talk with the fire chief himself, discussing our organization and the work that the firefighters do. I am so glad we were able to make their jobs a little bit easier and more cheerful with our cotton masks, and I am excited for the next opportunity to give out more PPE.

During August and September, we focused on donating masks and PPE to the city centers in Fremont including their Human Services division, as well as the Fire Station. The Human Services told us they’d be distributing our donations to their senior center as well as with other human service facilities like the homeless. Furthermore, we visited the Fire Station office to make a donation as well, knowing that with the current fires in California, they would be busy fighting these fires. We were able to talk with the fire chief as we made our donation and learned of the extent that the fire station was occupied and committed to their cause. Overall, being able to make donations to larger centers like the city centers of Fremont was rewarding because I knew that these donations were going to help at a much larger scale.


Erin Yang (11th, Mission San Jose High School)

These past couple of months we donated primarily to Fremont facilities. Specifically, we donated to the Fremont Senior Center and Fire Station. At the senior center, we found out that our donations would not only be used by the senior center, but also homeless facilities and more. We spent a lot of time and care making the firefighter masks with the correlating patterns, and I think they really appreciated that. It was really fun getting to talk to the fire chief and it made me truly realize how dedicated these front-line fighters are. I can only hope to become as honorable a member of society as them.

Throughout the months of August and September, we continued donating PPE to different organizations. To me personally, the highlight of these past two months would be our donation to the Fire Station. At the time when we made our delivery, the fires were at its worst, with thick smoke constantly filling the air around the area. Since the fires were especially bad at this time, I feel like donating to the fire station was especially important, as the fire fighters were working hard during this pandemic to prevent, control, and reduce the damage of all the spreading fires. It was a tough time, considering all these fires were piling up on top of all the trouble caused by COVID-19. During our delivery, we were able to meet and talk with the fire chief, who was very pleasant to talk with, being both humorous and outgoing. We were able to talk a bit about our organization and the PPE we produce. Again, I felt especially excited and happy about this delivery, considering the circumstances and knowing we were able to help through the organization and our donations.

The Corona Virus (COVID-19) has thrown the world into a global crisis.  This pandemic is affecting every aspect of life for all communities, regardless of where we live. During this unprecedented crisis, we need to look beyond our fears and reach out to those who are in greater need than us. We are fortunate enough to be healthy and safe in our homes, and what better way to use our extra time and energy than to help essential front line workers who put their lives on the line to combat COVID-19?

Music4Heart.org is a volunteer organization that performs music for seniors and children with special needs, and now, we are turning our attention to COVID-19. We are planning to have virtual concerts to share the healing powers of music during this difficult time. 

We are also organizing a campaign to help donate masks and other PPE to East Bay hospitals and other facilities with at-risk populations, and we would greatly appreciate your help. We have already bought some PPE, but with our limited budget, we can only buy so many.

Thank you for your generosity! Your monetary and PPE donations will help us fight the spread of COVID-19 in the highest risk groups in our community.
