MADISON (WKOW) -- UnityPoint Health - Meriter is working to secure enough personal protective equipment and supplies for its health care providers, staff and patients during the COVID-19 outbreak.
There are three key ways that community members can get involved to support them during this unprecedented pandemic, according to a news release.
Make a donation to UnityPoint Health - Meriter
Financial Donations: Give Now to the COVID-19 Compassion Fund to help them support the personal well-being of team members during this challenging time.
Supplies: UnityPoint Health – Meriter has adequate supplies for their care teams. Still, it's important to be proactive in their ongoing preparedness, and they are asking for the community's help. In particular, we are seeking donations of:
- N95 Masks (1860S - size small, 1860 - size small, 1870)
- Hand sanitizers
- While they don’t currently have a clinical need for hand-sewn masks, these may be used in other areas of our organization and within the community. We will happily accept handmade masks. Instructions can be found on: www.unitypoint.org/madison/covidhelp
There is a critical need for blood donations. Please visit https://www.redcrossblood.org/ to make an appointment to make a donation.
