A Toronto hospital is organizing a personal protective equipment (PPE) drive to support anticipated shortages in the medical system.
A group of medical leaders in the Michael Garron Hospital (MGH) community have organized the campaign that is meant to encourage businesses and individuals with personal protective equipment, like masks and gloves, to donate them to healthcare workers, according to the hospital.
“Donations of unopened, unexpired PPE can be delivered to the receiving dock off of Knight Street from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm, Monday to Friday. Social distancing practices will be enforced during the drop off,” reads the hospital’s website.
Those who may have any of the required supplies can check the PPE Drive website for more information on specific products that will be accepted.
All PPE will be inspected prior to use.
Note, the hospital says you will be required to show your driver’s license and company business card (if applicable) when making a hospital delivery. The receiving department will record the items you donate, and you can ask to remain anonymous.

When: March 23 to March 27
Time: 7:30 am to 3 pm
