CRMC asks public for donations of medical supplies


CROSBY — As the national pandemic continues, Cuyuna Regional Medical Center needs donations of medical supplies to help meet ongoing health care needs and conserve existing personal protective equipment for providers who are engaged in the coronavirus response.

According to a news release, protective face masks are especially needed since everyone entering the facility is now required to wear one. Even though the masks are laundered daily, supplies are running low. Also needed are disposable long-sleeved plastic gowns, non-plastic isolation gowns, N95 masks, clear plastic face shields, safety goggles and safety glasses. CRMC also welcomes notes of gratitude and encouragement for staff that will be shared in a safe manner.

Supplies may be safely donated 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, April 15, at CRMC’s employee parking lot along Highway 210 in Crosby. When a person comes to donate items, they must remain in their vehicle. A staff member will come to accept the donation. People should look for a tent and donation signage when they arrive.

For more information on donations or an alternative time to make a donation, contact Jennifer Podsiadly at .
