Give Blood and Plasma! Like a hospital, grocery store, or pharmacy, a blood drive is essential to ensuring the health of the community, and the Red Cross will continue to hold blood drives during this challenging time and you are encouraged to keep your blood donation appointment or schedule one.
Donate PPE! Asante is asking the public to donate personal protective equipment (PPE). Donations of the following will be accepted at the drop-off locations below:
N95 masks, both new and used
Handmade masks (Masks should include several layers of fabric, elastic ear loops and fit close to the face covering both the nose and mouth, and extend under the chin. It is preferred to have a mechanism to secure over the bridge of the nose.) Here is a recommended pattern.
Protective face shields
Elastomeric masks (a type of reusable N95 mask)
General ISO masks/paper masks
Isolation gowns (disposable or reusable)
Latex-free exam gloves in all sizes (i.e. Nitrile)
Donate Money or Supplies! Contact OHRA to make a donation or to see what supplies they are collecting for the homeless community.
