We are overwhelmed and touched by the community’s support and desire to help during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Because our needs are constantly changing, one of the best and most immediate ways you can support MU Health Care is with a donation to our COVID-19 Relief Fund. Your gift will be used to address the needs of patients and caregivers impacted by COVID-19, as well as support our staff’s greatest needs as they arise, such as specialized disinfecting technology, food for our staff or purchasing additional supplies to ensure we're prepared for any future scenarios that may occur.
Help us address our most pressing needs during the COVID-19 outbreak. Your gift will directly benefit our front-line staff as they help our community navigate this crisis.
Other Ways to Help
Outside of donations, there are many other ways you can help support MU Health Care. Here are a few:
Send a simple 'Thank you'
The community's support during this time has been amazing, and we love hearing from you. Click the link below to leave notes, photos or videos of encouragement and support for all staff and providers at MU Health Care.
To maintain social distancing guidelines, the Red Cross has had to cancel many blood drives, making it difficult to ensure an adequate supply. We encourage members of our community to keep their appointments or schedule new ones for blood, platelet and plasma donations.
The Red Cross follows the highest standards of safety and infection control, and volunteer donors are the only source of blood for those in need.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
At this time, MU Health Care has an adequate supply of N95 masks and other PPE. We will continue to closely monitor these supplies and have updated day-to-day practices to use resources efficiently to keep employees and patients safe now and into the future.
Many community members have expressed an interest in donating supplies. Items we can accept include:
- surgical/procedural masks
- isolation masks
- N95 and KN95 masks
- hand sanitizer
- Clorox wipes (2-3) placed in individual baggies for staff to wipe off their steering wheel and other high-touch items
Donations may be dropped off at 2910 LeMone Industrial Blvd. from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
We have a team working to assemble sewing kits with approved materials and a pattern with detailed instructions to distribute to those interested in helping. Please note: masks must be made in a smoke- and animal-free environment. If you'd like to be added to our volunteer list, please fill out this mask form, and we'll reach out as soon as kits are available.
Because of the volume of responses, we might not be able to reply to every inquiry. Know that we appreciate your support!
Feeding the front lines
Many members of our community have generously offered to supply meals for our hardworking front-line health care staff. Due to safety standards, we're unable to accept food from outside sources.
However, you can still help provide meals for our staff with a donation to our COVID-19 Relief Fund. When giving, enter "Feeding the Front Lines" in the box that says, "Please share with us why you are giving."
