UR Medicine (Rochester, NY) - 500 Masks Needed
Event Chair: Matt Ulakovic
UR Medicine, the area’s largest hospital system, is asking for your help in preserving their supply of manufactured masks for front-line health care workers by donating homemade cloth face masks for use by their support staff in non-patient facing areas. While many generous people throughout our community have already donated homemade masks, there remains a need as they prepare for the anticipated surge of COVID-19 cases in the coming weeks.
They are only accepting deliveries of handmade masks offsite at their College Town Donation Center, where they can maintain the greatest amount of social distancing, and process and wash your donation in a way that is safe for everyone. Please do not bring your donation to one of their hospitals.
Dropoff Location: 40 Celebration Dr. Rochester, NY 14642
Dropoff Times: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday – Friday
NOTE: Please park in the College Town Courtyard lot; enter through the double-doors (Look for the “Donation” signs); place your donation on the table at right upon entering the space.
- Please package your mask donation in a clean plastic bag, cardboard box, or other sealed container, and place a label on the outside with your:
- The contents and quantity
- Your email or phone number
