Jennifer Lau of Fresno started the Nurse Angel Network after receiving an email on Thursday night.
She is hoping to alleviate a shortage of personal protective equipment for doctors, nurses, and other hospital employees.
Right now, Lau is gathering extra or unneeded items like latex gloves, gowns, and caps - from local businesses wanting to help.
She will then deliver the items to hospitals on standby.
Lau says even just one mask can potentially save a life.
"I graduated from Fresno State, working in home health. I feel for my fellow nurses working on the front lines. It was the least I could do to give back," she said.
If you have supplies you'd like to donate, you can contact Jennifer by phone, email, or on Facebook.
