Fabric donations and Volunteers needed
There is a nationwide shortage of medical isolation gowns. Gowns are personal protective equipment (PPE) worn by nurses and caregivers to help protect them from the potential spread of infection or illness. Dove Healthcare has launched “Gowns for Good” in hopes of finding individuals able to donate fabric/sheets and or make gowns.
“While there are no known cases of COVID-19 at Dove Healthcare’s 11 locations, we always need to be prepared and those preparations include having adequate PPE supply. Our continuous efforts with vendors to locate gowns have come up short. We recognize the significant impact the community made with producing homemade masks, and we’re hoping this challenge of making homemade gowns for our healthcare heroes will be met with the same enthusiasm,” stated Regional Director of Operations Jeremy Kiley.
To make a donation of fabric or sheets or to sign up to make gowns, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 715-930-6004. For more information, visit dovehealthcare.com/events or facebook.com/dovehealthcare.

HSHS Sacred Heart St. Joseph's more cloth masks needed
Eau Claire and Chippewa Falls, WI - HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals are calling on community members to keep sewing and donating cloth face coverings. The overwhelming generosity in the past two months is appreciated by our hospital colleagues, leaders, board members and patients. Before use the masks are professional cleaned.
Cloth masks are being given to non-patient care colleagues, and patients when they are moving throughout the hospital and upon discharge. Those working in direct patient care areas will continue wearing personal protective equipment (PPE).
Current inventory of cloth masks is good, however the requirement for masking will continue within our hospitals, as per the CDC guidelines, for the foreseeable future. This will result in a need for additional donations.
Cloth masks can be dropped off in collection containers at Festival Foods in Eau Claire and Family Fare grocery stores in Chippewa Falls.
