Our Mission

we create4pDX

As this pandemic sweeps the globe, many, if not all front line workers have been risking their lives daily to fight COVID-19, working long and tiring shifts to treat and tend to people infected with this exponentially growing virus. Unfortunately, due to the lack of protective gear during these dire times, these heroes are often having to come in contact with this disease unprotected. They've been treating patients carrying COVID-19 with almost no protection or any means of safety, sometimes even lacking a small mask to cover their faces. Seeing this tragedy ignited several fires inside us. Signs of grief, signs of anger, and above all, signs of inspiration. We wanted so desperately to help these people, to contribute in any way we could. Any little impact we make would be a huge victory. If we could just deliver one mask to a medical professional in need, that would be enough. So, that's what we did, founding and beginning this ToborTech campaign create4pdx. With this group, we hope to build a community within the state of Oregon, where we can work together to help front line workers in need, printing, assembling, and delivering face shields to these people in the state. Our mission is for at least ten different people to be actively printing and producing parts from their 3D printer, with the more people the merrier. From this, we can quickly and efficiently assemble face shields to be donated to local hospitals in need. We hope, through the countless hours we've spent, manufacturing masks, building connections and support, and creating this organization, that we can all work together as a community to protect our people on the front lines, and fight to end this virus.
