How You Can Help: Donation Information for Our Community

March 24, 2020

We are grateful for the many offers of help. As you can imagine, it means the world to our health care teams to know that they have the support of our entire community.

 Here’s how you can help:

 Donate to our COVID-19 Support Fund - one of the best and quickest ways that you can help right now is to give to RRH COVID-19 Support Fund. This virus is difficult to predict, so donations will be used to meet our most pressing needs.

 Restaurant gift cards are a great idea - our hospital leadership teams can easily order meals before and after long shifts for our front line care providers to take home.

If you are interested in donating food to RRH to support our clinical teams, please email Julie.Hamil@rochesterregional.org. Please be aware we are unable to accept homemade food items. Food must be prepared in a commercial grade kitchen and packaged in individual servings

 Send encouraging messages to our patients - we suggest using social media. You can post videos and photos with #RRHspreadjoy, and we’ll share them with people who could use a smile. Or, if you’d prefer, send your messages to rrhfoundation@rochesterregional.org.

 As always, we appreciate messages of support for our health care teams. You can email messages to rrhfoundation@rochesterregional.org or post them on Rochester Regional’s social media channels.

 Donate face masks and other medical supplies. We are accepting masks that meet FDA/CDC guidelines as well as sewn masks. We aren’t particular about the color or pattern for sewn masks – we just appreciate your generosity. Additionally, we are accepting other medical supplies, like latex-free gloves and face shields.

 Donation drop off locations: Starting Friday, March 27th you’ll be able to drop off masks, gift cards and other supplies at three locations. Supplies will be distributed across Rochester Regional as needed to support our patients and care teams:
