We are Accepting Donations of Medical Supplies

The outpouring of help from our community during this COVID-19 epidemic has been tremendous and humbling. We exist to support our community, but learning how much our community is willing to help us is heartening, and only makes us double our commitment.

Donors can leave their donations with the attendents at the front desk in the hospital main lobby.
