Dear NJBIA member:

As the effects of the global pandemic continues to rise, the number of citizens seeking care at New Jersey hospitals for symptoms related to COVID-19 is growing. There is a drastic increase in the need for the personal protective equipment required to ensure the safety of our health care professionals.

NJBIA is hoping you can help by providing additional sources of the specific protective equipment listed below either with existing stock you may have or through connections with partners in your supply chain.  Coordinating this statewide effort is Madeline Ferraro, Vice President of Government and Public Affaris at Atlantic Health System. If you can help in any way, please contact Madeline at

What is needed:

  • N95 Masks or Similar*
  • Eye Protectors
  • Sterile Gowns
  • Surgical Gloves
  • Regular Masks

We know that in times of need, New Jersey’s business community can always be counted on.  We greatly appreciate any assistance you can provide.


Thank you and stay well,

Michele N. Siekerka, Esq.

President and CEO
