If you have gloves, thermometer probe covers, eye protection, gowns or gowns, these would be helpful too.  Please email me, Julie Ramirez, your Lee County Medical Society Executive Director, at jramirez@lcmsfl.org with your needs and/or willingness to donate and we will coordinate with United Way for pick up.
