MEMA Services Guidelines for Vendors, Volunteers, and Donations

Vendors wishing to contract with the State of Maryland to lease, manufacture or supply goods or services, please contact resource.mema@maryland.gov

  • Volunteers: MEMA will be the point of contact for LARGE Corporate Volunteers.  Those wishing to volunteer large groups of staff and or a multi-jurisdiction statewide scale should send mail to ngs.mema@Maryland.gov. Currently, the largest volunteer opportunity is the Maryland Responds Medical Reserve Corps.  
  • Donations: MEMA will accept product donations which are: 
    • Larger corporate donations delivered/transported by commercial carriers. For example: 5 pallets of bottled water delivered via DHL or England, etc. 
    • Donations must be PACKAGED in their original packaging/shrink wrap. For example, boxed medical gowns or scrubs in sealed unopened sleeves in a sealed shrink wrapped box.  No opened or repackaged donations will be accepted by the state.  
    • For businesses, please enter your donation into this database
    • Requests: MEMA does not accept direct requests for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) or other items from companies. Companies should contact their local jurisdiction via the Emergency Manager Contact List. Local jurisdictions work with MEMA to fulfill requests from companies that are unable to be fulfilled by the jurisdiction.
