The 2nd PPE PROJECT Distribution last weekend was bigger than the first – and a little more complicated. Due to delay in arrival to Charleston, some Face Shields, Type II masks and Gowns did not make it into the personalized box. Some items also got mixed up in the packing/allocation process. We are aware of the specific issues at each Site and with each order. We are taking this long weekend to re-group and set the stage to address everything. In the meantime, another shipment has arrived and we will combine and complete our orders. You will be updated as we have information this coming week.
CCMS’ PPE PROJECT has grown organically with several states and medical organizations joining our platform. We have coordinated nearly 1 million units of PPE for Doctors! Remember, the site is ongoing, you can place orders to replace your burn-through rate of PPE. We have added nitrile gloves and expect to offer hand sanitizer soon.
We are morphing into a true e-commerce site and will very soon announce the availability of DIRECT SHIPMENT to our offices! We will keep you posted as we roll this out. Many of the bumps along the road we’ve built will be leveled as we become more sophisticated.
As we all re-open our practices, it is comforting to know that we have PPE supplies to safely take care of our Staff, patients, families and ourselves.
I appreciate your support, patience and understanding – CCMS and our partners are working really hard for you.

ps: There will be no distribution of PPE during this Memorial Day weekend.
