Hi, my name is Gerald Jackson and I am 24-years-old. I was born and raised in Troy, Alabama. I currently reside in North Carolina. I am a Journalist, Influencer, Content Creator, and a Man of Faith! I have been blogging for 4 years and I love it! I don't shy away from the truth, always speak my mind, and before I take anything back, I'll add more to it.

Officials at UNC Health and WakeMed are asking the public for help with much-needed medical supplies. 

The providers’ biggest challenges right now are not having enough medical supplies due to COVID-19.

They want to have a surplus of supplies ready so they can handle the possibility of being overcome with patients.

The health providers are in need of personal protective equipment (PPE), including N95 masks, surgical masks (with and without shields), disposable gloves, disposable shoe covers, eye protection, and handmade masks. Other needs include nasal swabs, disinfectant, hand sanitizer with more than 60% alcohol and hand soap.

You can drop the supplies gathered off at four UNC locations:

UNC Health Learning Street, 2001 Carrington Mill Blvd, Morrisville- March 23: Noon-4 p.m., March 24, 25, 26,27; 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

UNC Wellness Center at Meadowmont, 100 Sprunt St., Chapel Hill- March 23-March 28, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.

UNC Wellness Center at Northwest Cary, 350 Stonecroft Lane, Cary- March 23-March 28, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.

Rex Wellness Center of Raleigh, 4200 Lake Boone Trail- March 23-March 2, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

You can also email WakeMed at info@wakemed.org to inform them what items they have. 

At this critical time, we are calling on our community so we can continue to protect our patients, providers, and staff, said Dr. Wesley Burks, CEO of UNC Health.
