Equipment Donation Requests

Right now, healthcare workers at Covenant have the supplies and gear they need to protect themselves and others, while caring for patients. We have appreciated the outpouring of support from our community as you have cared for us during this unprecedented time.

If you are still interested in donating, here's what we can use and how you can give:

Personal protective equipment (PPE). Nationwide there was a severe shortage of PPE. While regular distribution channels continue to ramp up, you can help by making a donation to support our COVID-19 response, including obtaining and producing protective gear for our caregivers. 

This includes new/unused:

  • Disposable face masks
  • N95 or R95 masks/respirators
  • Face shields (clear)
  • Safety goggles and other eye protection (clear)
  • Disposable gowns
  • Disposable Nitrile gloves (non-latex)
  • Disposable surgical caps
  • Disposable foot covers
  • Bleach or antimicrobial wipes
  • Hand-sanitizer (>60% alcohol)
  • Swabs (for sample/specimen collection)
  • Covenant is also accepting donations of personal-use masks. For those wishing to sew personal use masks, please use the guide below, from the Michigan Health Improvement Alliance.

Where to Drop-Off
Smaller personal donations and hand-sewn personal masks may be dropped off at:
     - 700 Cooper - Front Desk/Drop-box

Individuals and organizations wishing to make bulk industrial donations of PPE should contact Supply Chain Management at 989.583.4191.

We are so appreciative of a community that is rallying to support patients and healthcare workers during this unprecedented time. You are extraordinary.

Important note: At this time, personal-use masks should not replace medically necessary personal protective equipment (PPE) required for isolation patients and other situations. Infection Prevention and Control procedures must be followed at all times. The goal is to support our staff and patients while conserving critical PPE for situations in which it is required. 

Donating protective equipment to hospitals and other health organizations is permitted under the Michigan Executive Order suspending non-essential operations. Individuals are permitted to leave their homes to make these donations.
