As health care facilities throughout the country currently face supply shortages, we so appreciate the many willing individuals and organizations looking to donate needed items to us during this COVID-19 outbreak.
To make this process as smooth as possible, we have created a central donation mechanism for anyone looking to donate supplies to our facilities.
Currently, we are accepting donations of the following items:
- Face shields
- Latex gloves
- Tyvek suits
In regards to handmade and non-clinical masks, standard issue masks are still the best way to protect our health care professionals. However, for the time being, we are also accepting handmade mask donations. These masks will go through an evaluation process before being used by either a health care associate or a patient. Please check out these step-by-step instructions for creating masks, if you’re interested, or check out the instructional video below.
As we have any additional needs or details regarding donated supplies, we will continue to update this page with new information. Our quality, safety, supply chain and clinical teams are all working together to evaluate the donations being gathered.
If you would like to make a supply donation, or know of community members looking for facilities to donate to, please reach out using the contact information below.
EMAIL: APRush@bshsi.org with subject line: DONATION
Please note – to protect the health and safety of our patients and care teams, donations should NOT be brought directly to our facilities.
If you don’t have supplies and would instead like to make a financial donation to support our teams on the frontline, visit our foundation website.

Patty MollmannThank you for the tutorial - my sister (retired RN) made our family each a mask and I appreciate all you're doing to get this info out to others :)
