Amid the global crisis, medical supplies are in high demand and in short supply. So, those behind the scenes of some of the most popular medical dramas are donating their goods to real-life doctors and hospitals.

The dramas including 'Grey’s Anatomy,' 'Station 19' and 'The Resident' are all donating surgical gloves and masks that are used as props on the shows to aid real-life doctors in the fight against the virus. 

"At 'Station 19,' we were lucky enough to have about 300 of the coveted N95 masks which we donated to our local fire station," Krista Vernoff, executive producer of 'Grey’s Anatomy' and 'Station 19' told Good Morning America in a statement.

"They were tremendously grateful. At Grey’s Anatomy, we have a back-stock of gowns and gloves which we are donating as well. We are all overwhelmed with gratitude for our healthcare workers during this incredibly difficult time, and in addition to those donations, we are doing our part to help them by staying home."

Other television shows that will be making similar donations include 'The Good Doctor' and 'Filthy Rich', which will donate cleaning supplies and food pallets.

"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," Dr. Karen L. Law, program director of Internal Medicine Residency Program at Emory University, told CNN of the donations her team received from 'The Resident.'

She took to Instagram to express her gratitude:
