Southwest Michigan Comes Together in Response to COVID-19

South West Michigan Comes Together

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 Wood Foundation who donated $25,000 to the COVID-19 Response Fund.
  • 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.
  • Several local manufacturing organizations who helped develop
    innovative solutions for personal protective equipment.
  • Countless community members and organizations who donated needed supplies to the drop-off site at Lakeland at Meadowbrook.

“We are so grateful for the outpouring of support in this time of great uncertainty,” said Brandi Smith, vice president philanthropy, Spectrum Health Lakeland. “We know our community cares deeply for our health care workers on the front lines and their generosity is so appreciated by all.”
