,States are alphabetized (Districts are not) .

Breaking Taboo has compiled a list of medical supply donation details for all major hospitals in the Los Angeles County area. If you are located in a different district or state please call your local hospital and email us the information at breakingtaboo.org@gmail.com , or DM us on our social media accounts. We hope to include as many hospitals as possible cross the US. This is only half of the hospitals we have called. We are still waiting to hear back from the ones we have left voicemails for and emailed. This list will be updated as we receive more information. Details we are looking for include:

1) Name of Hospital and Address ( including which entrance to drop things off at)
2) Instructions including different contact info, if necessary (call ahead of time or email or no?)
3) How to drop off while maintaining 6-10 feet safety precautions
4) Hours of drop off if not 24 hours
5) Specific items hospital needs (some hospitals only want N95 masks, others want any type of masks. Some hospitals need gloves, others do not, etc)
6) Will hospital accept open boxes (ie half used box of gloves or masks) or only closed boxes and packages?

Thank you for your help. Together we can fight this epidemic.
