COVID-19: How You Can Help

Donating Supplies

Due to the rapidly evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic and the limited nationwide supply of personal protective equipment (PPE), we are accepting in-kind donations of specific materials in the event a shortage occurs. These approved materials include:

  • Disposable face masks
  • Hand-sewn face masks that meet specific criteria (guidelines and patterns detailed here)
  • Latex-free gloves
  • Medical gowns
  • Face shields
  • Other health care PPE materials

Please note that all items must be in the original packaging with the exception of hand-sewn masks and medical gowns.

To donate these materials, please bring your donation to the main entrance of Maury Regional Medical Center at 1224 Trotwood Avenue in Columbia between the hours of 5 a.m. and 8 p.m. daily. All donations should include a note that includes the donor’s name, contact information and quantity of items.

If you are donating a substantial quantity of materials, please first contact our Supply Chain Department at arosen@mauryregional.com to arrange a delivery date and time.

Donating Hand-sewn Masks

Many individuals from the community have generously offered to sew cloth masks to supplement our preparedness. Those who would like to donate hand-sewn cloth masks are asked to use one of the designs available here. One design is specifically intended to help extend the safe use of PPE, serving as an “outer mask” while also providing alternatives for other situations that may arise in the future. The shape of this pattern is similar to the n95 mask. Please note that these masks are not PPE and are not intended for use with COVID-19 patients. 

DONATING HAND-SEWN GOWNS

Those who would like to donate hand-sewn gowns are asked to use a pattern that is similar to the appearance of the one below, with long sleeves and some form of cuff so that it fits at the wrist and ties in the back. Please adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Use tightly woven cotton fabric (such as quilter’s fabric)
  • Fabric must have been newly purchased within the past year and never used/worn
  • Wash and dry fabric without fragrance or dyes prior to sewing
  • Tie straps should be fabric

Gowns may be dropped off at the main entrance of Maury Regional Medical Center at 1224 Trotwood Avenue between 5 a.m. and 8 p.m. A collection bin will be available. If you need additional information, please call 931.380.4047. 

Maury Regional Health is grateful for those who want to help our caregivers stay safe while caring for patients. Thank you for caring for our health care team!

Donating Snacks for Employees

Donations of pre-packaged snacks for MRH employees may be accepted on a case-by-case basis. Please note that all food items must be in an unopened and pre-packaged container purchased from a store. Packages can be delivered to the main entrance of Maury Regional Medical Center between the hours of 5 a.m. and 8 p.m. daily. If you have any questions, please contact us at 931.381.1111, ext. 4047.

Pack the Porch with Prayer Fridays!

Maury Regional Health has received offers from groups and individuals to “pack the parking lot” for prayer and we have been deeply touched by this outpouring of love. In the current concern for the welfare of the community, we encourage our supporters to instead pack the porch with prayer every Friday evening at 6 p.m. as a visual and spiritual demonstration of prayer for our care team. This will preserve our “social distance” health and still lift up our team in prayer. Please post your photos on social media and tag Maury Regional Health so that our care team can see your outpouring of support. Thank you for your powerful witness in this time of uncertainty and fear.
