Drop-off locations opening tomorrow at noon for community donations
Grand Rapids, Mich., March 23, 2020 – Responding to the outpouring of community inquiries and offers of support, Spectrum Health is opening 14 drop-off donation sites for medical supplies beginning at noon on Tuesday, March 24. The locations and hours of operation are listed below.
While Spectrum Health continues to maintain a supply of masks and other personal protection equipment for its patients and health care providers, we are working to stretch our supply and turning to the community because we anticipate the need will continue to grow.
The following items will be accepted at the donation sites:
Traveling to drop-off sites to donate medical supplies does not violate Michigan’s statewide stay-at-home order, which allows for an exception to the order for providing necessities to “individuals who need assistance as a result of this emergency”. To reduce the risk of exposure for all, we ask donors to place donations in the bins provided at each location while maintaining a distance of at least six feet from others. More information is available here.
Spectrum Health is not currently accepting donations of 3D printed items, other medical equipment, medications or blankets. If you have a large donation requiring special arrangements or a question about a donation, please email our supply chain team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Anyone who would like to make a monetary donation to support our COVID-19 response effort may do so here.
Please note, we will not be accepting donations until noon on March 24th. We will be collecting items during the dates and times outlined below after that point.
*Health Pointe is a joint venture of Spectrum Health and Holland Hospital.
