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. But with the number of COVID-19 patients rising daily, leaders at Covenant HealthCare are asking for the community’s help in donating supplies now. That way, supplies will be ready if needed in coming days and weeks, to protect staff and patients at the Covenant medical center and outlying facilities.

Here's what we need and how you can give:

Personal protective equipment (PPE). Nationwide there is a severe shortage of PPE. While regular distribution channels 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
     - 5400 Mackinaw Road - Outdoor drop-off at a Covenant vehicle (Monday - Friday between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm) 

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.
