It's one thing not to support individual charity as a replacement for social services, and another not to support helping your neighbors in time of need.

However, having a small number of masks for your family is reasonable, and I don't think anyone would suggest you should donate them unless you were hoarding a large number.

CPAP machines are not a replacement for ventilators.
