In an effort to protect the health and safety of employees and patients, the Banner Health Foundation is seeking 100,000 hand-crafted comfort masks donated by volunteers, sewing groups, and companies with fabrication capabilities, according to a release.
There is no need to individually package each mask, as they will be professionally laundered by Prestige Cleaners before being given to staff and patients.
(Note these will not be worn by providers directly caring for COVID-19 patients, nor in any procedure rooms or isolation areas.)
Donations can be dropped off without any physical contact at:
2100 W. 14th St., Building T3
Tempe, AZ 85281
The building is located just west of 52nd Street between Broadway and University; look for the Project C.U.R.E signs.
DONATION HOURS: Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Donated supplies will be deployed in Banner Health’s Arizona hospitals and medical centers.
Important instructions:To keep volunteers and donors safe, people bringing donations should pack the items into the trunk of their car and pull into the donation line. Please leave windows up and do not get out of your car. A volunteer will unload the items.
