Donating Supplies

Maury Regional Health is not currently in urgent need of supplies. However, 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 pattern 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 the pattern available here. This 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 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. 4373, or cwilmore@mauryregional.com.

Making a financial Contribution to Those in Need

If you would like to help at-risk members of the community during this evolving health care crisis, please consider making a donation to the Maury Regional Health Care Foundation’s “Medication and Transportation Fund.” Your contribution will help to provide medication, medication supplies and gas cards for patients experiencing financial need. Every dollar can make a difference.

In addition, the Foundation is also accepting gifts for the #ShaveItForward campaign to honor Maury Regional Health (MRH) employees who had to shave their facial hair to be fitted properly for specific personal protective equipment (PPE). Donations to the #ShaveItForward campaign will go toward the Foundation’s William R. Walter Employee Assistance Fund, which provides financial assistance to MRH employees who have experienced an unexpected crisis or are pursuing continuing education.
