This information was shared by Chico Weber, a local 3-d printer fabricator who is working with makers at M.A.D.E., 5127 Delmar, Arch Reactor and Inventor Forge to fabricate face shields for doctors and nurses at Barnes Jewish Hospital during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Face Shield Initiative STL is an organizational effort initiated by Emily Elhoffer and David Cervantes to source, fabricate, assemble, and deliver needed medical supplies during the COVID-19 outbreak in St. Louis, Missouri.

Currently our mission is to fabricate as many RC2 Face Shields, designed by Prusa (https://www.prusaprinters.org/…/25857-prusa-protective-face…), for Barnes Jewish Hospital. They have requested 300.

For those who want to donate to the cause (they have raised over $7,000 of their $10,000 goal), here is a link to the organization’s GoFundMe account.

Wow! A huge thank-you to everyone for helping us meet our goal. These funds are being used for much-needed materials for our face sheilds, and for transportation of those materials. All funds, including any additional donations, will continue to fuel our material purchases. Thank you to everyone who has helped make this possible. We’ll share photos of our batches of shields as they come out. Thank you from our whole team. Stay isolated, and if you can’t, please stay sanitary!
