Coronavirus Crisis: Harbor Freight Steps Up!

Harbor Freight Will Donate Key Emergency Supplies to Hospitals
In this time of need, Harbor Freight has put community ahead of profit. While other suppliers have been profiteering on sales of scarce medical supplies, Harbor Freight has done the opposite. Eric Smidt, Founder at Harbor Freight, has made this generous offer to hospitals across the United States.

We at 4WD Mechanix Magazine applaud Harbor Freight’s support for health care workers and first responders on the front line—Thanks, Harbor Freight!—Moses Ludel

“Dear Harbor Freight Community,

As we’ve been following the news over the last few days, we’ve heard about the severe shortage of protective gear for hospitals, healthcare workers and first responders as the impact of COVID-19 is being felt across the country. America depends on these heroes every day and in the days ahead we will depend on them even more. At Harbor Freight, we want them to know that they can depend on us too.

So we’ve decided to donate our entire supply of the personal protective equipment items listed below to front line hospitals with 24 hour emergency rooms in the communities served by our stores.

           •  N95 Masks
           •  Face Shields
           •  5 and 7 mil Nitrile Gloves

If you work at a hospital with a 24 hour emergency room in need of these items, please ask the office in charge of procurement at your hospital to click here so they can provide us with the information we’ll need to determine if we can make a donation. If you’re not with a hospital, but would like to give us the name of a hospital with a 24 hour emergency room in your community that might need our help, please email us at hospitalhelp@harborfreight.com, identify the hospital’s city and state in the subject line, and our team will follow-up.


  For hospitals we’re able to help, we’ll email them a voucher when the supplies are available for pick up at their local Harbor Freight Tools store.

Although we certainly won’t have enough of these supplies to fill everyone’s needs, we’re going to donate everything we’ve got. We also recognize that there are so many other critically important people responding to this crisis and that there is need everywhere. We’ve chosen to focus our efforts on hospitals with a 24 hour emergency room with the hope that we can help as many people as possible right now.  

Thank you and God Bless,

Eric Smidt
Owner and Founder
Harbor Freight Tools”
