City of Long Beach Develops System to Connect Providers to Personal Protective Equipment and an Online Exchange Platform for Facial Coverings


LONG BEACH – The City of Long Beach has developed a system to connect providers with personal protective equipment (PPE), as well as a way for people to donate goods and services and access to facial coverings through an online exchange platform.
Request for Medical PPE:
Various qualifying organizations in need of PPE, including healthcare facilities, medical providers, shelters, adult day care and long-term care facilities, may request supplies via the City’s website, under “Resources for Healthcare Providers.”
Equipment Donations to the City:
To streamline and manage the donations and offers of assistance to the City of Long Beach, the City also has developed an online form at,
The new form can be completed by local businesses and community volunteers interested in providing assistance.
The form will help the City organize donation offers such as business facility use, transportation and delivery services and personal protective equipment. Additionally, donations of food and hygiene kits for persons experiencing homelessness and offers of volunteer services in a variety of skill areas are captured by the form. All information provided is electronically safeguarded for privacy and reviewed to determine the best match with City operational needs.
Creation of an Online Exchange for Facial Coverings:
Face masks and coverings for an individual’s personal use can be purchased through a marketplace created by the Long Beach Post in partnership with the City of Long Beach. Mask makers and businesses can register via the Vendor Registration form.
