Grey’s Anatomy and Other TV Shows Donating Masks And Gloves To Hospitals Amid COVID-19 Outbreak
The producers of Grey’s Anatomy feel there is a higher calling for masks and other medical equipment
Even the writers of Grey’s Anatomy probably couldn’t have come up with a pandemic plot like the one we’re living in right now.
The spread of the Coronavirus means hospitals across the country are dangerously short on medical supplies like masks and gloves.
“We are all overwhelmed with gratitude for our healthcare workers during this incredibly difficult time, and in addition to these donations, we are doing our part to help them by staying home.”Krista Vernoff, executive producer of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ & ‘Station 19’
Those ABC shows are not alone. The producers of “The Resident” dropped off a load of medical supplies to Grady Hospital in Atlanta.

"Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping." . To the entire team @theresidentonfox, thank you for this incredibly generous donation of #PPE from your set, including gowns, masks, gloves, and all the things our healthcare workers need to provide safe care for our community during #COVID19. . Yesterday, I had a serious discussion with the residents about how, though supplies are low, a magical shipment of masks is unlikely to arrive. And yet, a magical shipment of masks DID arrive, in the form of this very generous gesture. This kind of community support means so much to our #frontlineproviders who are making many sacrifices to staff our hospitals and care for our community. . Thank you, @theresidentonfox and @foxtv for being helpers. We needed this kind of good news today. . PS: Sorry it's not a great pic, but the focus was not on the photo at the time. Similarly, the team @theresidentonfox are good citizens doing good deeds and not looking for a shout out. Though I encourage all to support The Resident and the great team behind the show and to pay their good deed forward any way you can. . #Hurstlife #residentlife #emoryIMresidents #lookforthehelpers #gratitude
