Keep the masks coming!

April 30, 2020

We are so grateful for the donations of homemade masks to be used by employees that do not have direct contact with patients and our hospital and site visitors. If you cannot make masks but happen to have craft material on hand to donate, we have folks available to sew.

Supply needs for us at this time include: water-resistant fabric to make reusable isolation gowns, breathable fabric for masks, thread and elastic.

Here’s a helpful video for how to make masks.

How else can you help?

Donations of medical supplies are greatly appreciated as we are preparing for the possibility of another wave of COVID-19 patients. Items most needed include: N95 masks, hand sanitizer, eye protection, disinfectant wipes, anti-microbial soap and other medical supplies. Please direct all inquiries to or call 847-618-0252 Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

If you have donations of other items or special offers (discounts on food, services, etc.) for staff support and recognition, please email or call 847-618-GIVE.
