How to donate medical supplies to Delaware hospitals
ChristianaCare has a collection March 25-27 for medical supplies from the community to help protect health care workers throughout Delaware.
- unused protective face masks, especially N95 masks;
- protective suits and medical scrubs;
- goggles, safety glasses and face shields;
- cleaning and sterilizing solutions and wipes;
- medical gloves;
- digital and disposable thermometers;
- hand sanitizer.
ChristianaCare is requesting donations of these items from businesses or community members who have supplies that they do not need.
Monetary donations can be made at christianacare.org/donors.
To keep volunteers and donors safe, people bringing donations should pack the items into the trunk of their car and pull into the donation line; while in line, leave windows up and stay in the car, and wait for a volunteer to unload the items.
People at the site are advised to practice social distancing by keeping at least six feet apart. Anyone who is experiencing flu-like symptoms should not come.
Items will be accepted from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. March 25-27 at 110 W. Market St., Newport, with dates to be added. Conducted in partnership with business leaders Richard Piendak and Dave Tiberi, other local businesses and members of the community.
