In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, community members, donors, and organizations throughout Southwest Michigan have come together in various ways to support those serving on the front lines at Spectrum Health Lakeland. We are grateful for the generosity of many, including:

- The 2020 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship who donated $15,030 from volunteer uniform package fees in support of the COVID-19 Response Fund.
- Whirlpool Corporation who donated several shipments of critical medical supplies including hand sanitizer and tens of thousands of medical masks, gloves, thermometers, and hospital gowns.
- Amway in Grand Rapids who donated hand sanitizer for use throughout Spectrum Health facilities.
- Lakeshore Public Schools for loaning 150 iPads to be used in telehealth visits.
- Women’s Service League, and many other local organizations, who organized and donated meal deliveries to departments across the health system.
