Ways to Help


The UW Makerspace Covid-19 Face Shield Response Team could use your help! If you’ve been looking for a way to get involved in the fight against Covid-19, please consider volunteering your time to help increase the visibility of the Shield-Net Badger Shield project. This platform connects face shield manufacturers to organizations that need them.

What we need the most help with right now is increasing the platform’s reach. We already have an amazing network of manufacturers producing shields, and we are doing all we can to help get those shields into the hands that need them most. With the breadth of our community’s efforts, we are at a point where we are able to serve essential personnel facilities nationwide.

To do this, we have developed a crowdsourcing form for collecting a national database of names and contact information for these facilities by state. We’re asking for your help in locating these organizations.

We will be pushing this through our networks, asking for participation and circulation – and we ask that you do the same. Please feel free to share this form, and watch as the database populates and facilities are contacted.
