The Astros Foundation, Project C.U.R.E. and Cheniere Energy will be holding a PPE drive today at Minute Maid Park from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. to collect equipment that Houstonians may want to donate.
Janet Thomason, director of national procurement with Project C.U.R.E., said the city is looking for boxes of donations
"Look in your storage rooms, companies. Look in your heart. Donate those items to those who care for us," Thomason said. "We're looking for anything that will help protect our first responders."
Mayor Sylvester Turner says he would like to have a stockpile of well over 1 million N-95 masks for a city the size of Houston.
"This is what Houston is all about. We have some fantastic partners, people who are stepping up each and every day and providing essential supplies for our first responders and healthcare providers," Turner said last week.
If you wish to donate, pull up to the ballpark along Crawford Street to drop off the gear.
