Medical Supply Drive Extended thru June 1

Sisters Amy and Mya Nguyen haven’t squandered their time during the shelter-in-place order. Mya, a ninth-grader at Alameda High School and Amy, a seventh-grader at Will C. Wood Middle School have launched a successful medical supply drive that has been underway since April 23.

The teenagers are seeking donations of new N95 or surgical masks, hand sanitizer, disinfectants and wipes for cleaning, disposable gloves, protective goggles or isolation gowns which they will then supply to healthcare workers and first responders.

Drop off donations at Alameda Police Department, 1555 Oak St. The goods will be distributed to Bay Area hospitals, clinics and first responders.

See the sisters’ video appeal at Cash donations can be made at and designate “PPE drive.”

The deadline to donate has been extended to Monday, June 1.
