UConn Health has been overwhelmed by the generosity of people seeking to help frontline workers in the battle against COVID-19. Here’s how you can help. ()
At UConn Health, the delivery of care means long hours, critical decision making and compassion for all of its patients. Carrying out that healthcare and public service mission in the midst of the crisis that is the COVID-19 pandemic puts great strain not only on caregivers but also on resources.
Despite the fact that everyone in the state is under unprecedented levels of stress and vulnerability, UConn Health has benefitted from incredible acts of generosity from the community.
UConn Health is now putting out the call for donations of personal protective equipment (PPE), which are in a critical shortage at this time. This effort is being supported by the UConn Foundation.
UConn Health is asking for donations of new and unused:
- N95 respirator face masks
- Disposable face masks
- Face shields and goggles
- Disinfection wipes and liquids
- General-purpose hand cleaners
