Local Medical Facilities Seeking Help
Our local medical facilities are long-range planning for, among many things, supplies of personal protective equipment (PPE). They are asking local companies if they have PPE they are willing to donate or be reimbursed for. Supplies MUST be new and unused. Please pass this information on to others who work in industries that may have these supplies (dental, orthodontics, construction, etc.).
N-95 particulate respirators
Face masks/surgical masks (adult, pediatric)
Gloves (nitrile, vinyl, or butyl)
Eye protection (safety glasses, goggles)
Hand sanitizer (at least 60% alcohol)
Each medical facility has specific guidelines. Please see below:
Gundersen Health System
To donate any of the above and help keep our staff, patients and community as safe as possible, please contact Gundersen Medical Foundation at (608) 775-6600 or email@example.com.
*Note: Homemade masks are being accepted if they meet specific criteria. For directions and a pattern, please contact Gundersen Medical Foundation. (Mask specifications can be found here; how-to video here). To align needs and supply of PPE, PLEASE call Gundersen Medical Foundation first. This will allow staff to track the number of masks being made and who is making them.
Mayo Clinic Health System
Many businesses and individuals have reached out offering donations of masks and other personal protective equipment. Please know that we are humbled by this concern for our staff and our patients, and grateful for every offer of help. At present, we are only able to accept items that are in their original, opened containers. We are not able to accept sewn masks. If you have questions about donations, please contact Teri Wildt, Director of Community Engagement, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 608-797-5859.
