Mar 25, 2020 Share

St. Joseph, Mich., March 25, 2020 – In response to the outpouring of community inquiries and offers of support, Spectrum Health Lakeland has established a drop-off donation site at Lakeland at Meadowbrook, located at 2550 Meadowbrook Road in Benton Harbor. Donations will be accepted from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.  

While Spectrum Health Lakeland continues to maintain a supply of masks and other personal protection equipment for its patients and healthcare providers, we are working to stretch our supply and turning to the community because we anticipate the need will continue to grow. 

“We are incredibly grateful for our community’s support during this time of uncertainty,” said Brandi Smith, vice president, philanthropy, Spectrum Health Lakeland. “We are living in a world that demands social distancing, but together we are bridging the gap and truly demonstrating the power of community.” 

The following items will be accepted at the donation sites:   

  • N95 Masks

  • Isolation masks (adult/child) 

  • Masks with face shield/visor 

  • Face shields 

  • Goggles/safety glasses 

  • Bouffant caps 

  • Extended extra protection gloves – all sizes 

  • Isolation gowns 

  • Bleach wipes 

  • Swabs (flexible mini-tip) 

  • Pocket-sized sanitizer 

  • Thermometers (digital, disposable, temporal) 

Traveling to drop-off sites to donate medical supplies does not violate Michigan’s statewide stay-at-home order, which allows for an exception to the order for providing necessities to “individuals who need assistance as a result of this emergency.” To reduce the risk of exposure for all, we ask donors to call 269.927.5361 when they arrive at the drop-off site for further instructions. More information about items being accepted can be found at spectrumhealthlakeland.org/covid19donations

At this time Spectrum Health Lakeland is not accepting donations of other medical equipment, medications, or blankets. If you have a large donation requiring special arrangements or a question about a donation, please email safetycamp@lakelandhealth.org
