Making a Difference

The numbers are in! 4,140 face shields have been donated to Temple Hospital since starting this effort.

Way to go, everyone. Woot! Woot!

Without breaking stride, we continue making face shields to benefit front-line heroes in the medical community. It would not be possible without the incredible team effort – from generous donors such as Avison Young, to our volunteers, some of whom are from KMRD and others being from TDI Technologies.  Thank you, everyone, for the enormous achievement and for your team spirit. You are making a big difference. Here’s why…

Living within the corona-virus pandemic has become the new normal. As of May 3, 2020, the number of confirmed cases in the United States is a staggering 1,122,486 people. The need for face shields still exists. We are looking for more volunteers to help out. Can you donate 4 hours of your time? Please visit Volunteers for Heroes to start the process and join us at one of the sites. We would love to see you here.

About Face

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, TDI Technologies, Inc., a science and technology company based out of King of Prussia, PA, was eager to become involved in creating solutions to help us fight the fight. To that end, we formed a non-profit organization known as ChariTdi.

ChariTdi initiated its first call-to-action for able-bodied volunteers to manufacture PPE for local healthcare workers. We asked for volunteers that could spare 4 hours, with no prior experience necessary. We were able to secure a warehouse in Conshohocken, PA, and another warehouse at the Northeast Philly Armory. We are happy to report the results of our efforts in the first week. Together we manufactured and delivered over 1,500 face shields!

To those of you who have already volunteered to help……THANK YOU!

The face shields are being used by Temple University Hospital. We are told these are the best face shields they have access to, so these were sent to Anesthesiologists and Respiratory doctors and nurses – because they are the most at-risk for contracting COVID-19.

Thank you to the volunteers for their time and contributions to our community. You are the reason for our success!

We are looking for more volunteers in the coming weeks as the demand for face shields grows. To sign up, please visit Volunteers for Heroes to start the process and volunteer at one of our manufacturing sites.
