The Plastic Surgical Nurses Foundation has established the COVID-19 PPE Relief Fund to address the critical need of facemasks and personal protective equipment currently facing our Practice. The PSNF and the ISPAN ask all members willing and capable to help by producing these items at home. Below we have provided links to instructions for both facemask and face shields. Members are also welcome to donate additional funding to the COVID-19 PPE Relief Fund which will be used to reimburse members for the cost of the materials used on the project.

We understand many of you are out of work and unable to make any monetary donations at this time, but some members have asked to contribute to the fund. If you would like to donate, please click on the link provided below.
