How You Can Help
With an increased demand for medical supplies during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have faced a shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as masks, gowns, gloves, goggles and face shields. We have implemented stringent practices to preserve our supply, and welcome donations from community members and businesses with the guidelines below.
We also welcome donations of restaurant-prepared meals and/or gift cards for our employees who are working extra hours in addition to caring for their families.
