Default Help support the villages hospital with two simple emails

Harbor freight is donating ALL their supplies of N95 masks, face shields and nitrile gloves to hospitals that have 24 hour emergency rooms.

Our hospital is now called:
UF Health The Villages Hospital
1451 El Camino Real
Lady Lake, FL 32159

Send the first email to:

hospitalhelp@harborfreight.com with the subject; the villages, Florida

Then send an e-mail to your friends and clubs and everyone you know here and elsewhere to ask them to do the same.

Here is the email I got from harbor freight

From: "Eric Smidt, Harbor Freight Tools Founder" <hft@em.harborfreight.com>

Subject: Help Us Help Your Hospital

HARBOR FREIGHT
Dear Harbor Freight Community,

As we’ve been following the news over the last few days, we’ve heard about the severe shortage of protective gear for hospitals, healthcare workers and first responders as the impact of COVID-19 is being felt across the country. America depends on these heroes every day and in the days ahead we will depend on them even more. At Harbor Freight, we want them to know that they can depend on us too.

So we’ve decided to donate our entire supply of the personal protective equipment items listed below to front line hospitals with 24 hour emergency rooms in the communities served by our stores.

• N95 Masks
• Face Shields
• 5 and 7 mil Nitrile Gloves
If you work at a hospital with a 24 hour emergency room in need of these items, please ask the office in charge of procurement at your hospital to click here so they can provide us with the information we’ll need to determine if we can make a donation. If you’re not with a hospital, but would like to give us the name of a hospital with a 24 hour emergency room in your community that might need our help, please email us at hospitalhelp@harborfreight.com, identify the hospital’s city and state in the subject line, and our team will follow-up.

PLEASE DO NOT MAKE REQUESTS AT YOUR LOCAL STORE OR OUR CALL CENTER AND PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT HOSPITALS—THEY’RE BUSY HELPING THEIR PATIENTS.

For hospitals we’re able to help, we’ll email them a voucher when the supplies are available for pick up at their local Harbor Freight Tools store.

Although we certainly won’t have enough of these supplies to fill everyone’s needs, we’re going to donate everything we’ve got. We also recognize that there are so many other critically important people responding to this crisis and that there is need everywhere. We’ve chosen to focus our efforts on hospitals with a 24 hour emergency room with the hope that we can help as many people as possible right now.

Thank you and God Bless,

Eric Smidt
Owner and Founder

At the moment I doubt the need is "urgent". But the announcement from Harbor Freight doesn't specify that the need has to be "urgent" to qualify for someone to send in a request.

Considering the rate at which the virus is spreading, and the fact that the virus has been diagnosed in all three Villages counties, I'd say there is a need - even if it isn't urgent - yet.

Even an extra case of gloves, masks, and shields could make a huge difference.

Probably a bigger difference to a hospital that will run out this afternoon.

OP, maybe I missed it, but I don’t see anything that indicates the more requests, the better. Shouldn’t one request suffice (assuming the need is here)?

Why would we want to bombard them with emails?
