Karmanos asks for donations of protective gear and supplies to help with COVID-19 response

At this time, Karmanos has the supplies needed to care for patients and protect staff who are responding to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus). However, as this situation evolves, we may need additional materials. In anticipation of an increased need, we are asking our community to donate any relevant medical supplies they may have.

What to donate (new or unused):

  • Disposable face masks
  • N95 masks, sometimes called respirators
  • Eye protection including face shields and safety goggles
  • Wipes: bleach or antimicrobial
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Disposable gowns
  • Disposable gloves, especially powder-free non-latex
  • Powered air-purifying respirators (PAPR) hoods
