Hospital moves donation site to Goodwill.

AMBER TOWNSHIP — Spectrum Health has moved its donation site to the Goodwill Store, 4781 W. US 10. Drop-off times are Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The move in location, which was previously on Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital’s campus is a result of the volume of donations decreasing, and a continuation to keep communities safe.

While Spectrum Health continues to maintain a supply of masks and other personal protection equipment for its patients and health care providers, staff is working to stretch supply and is turning to the community because the anticipated need will continue to grow.

 The following items will be accepted at the donation sites:  

Protective Gear (visit here for specifications)

  • N95 mask/surgical mask
  • Isolation masks (adult/child)
  • Bouffant caps
  • Isolation gowns

  Additional Supplies

  • Bleach wipes/disinfectant wipes
  • Swabs (flexible mini-tip, unable to accept swabs made with wooden tube or stick)
  • Pocket-sized sanitizer
  • Viral transport media
  • We are accepting handmade protective masks, according to the design in this informative video to ensure safety and quality.

At this time, Spectrum Health is unable to accept:

  • Painters masks
  • 3D printed items including ventilator parts
  • Expired surgical kits
  • Perishable food, blankets, medical equipment, medication or other supplies

Traveling to drop-off sites to donate medical supplies does not violate Michigan’s statewide stay-at-home order, which allows for an exception to the order for providing necessities to “individuals who need assistance as a result of this emergency”. To reduce the risk of exposure for all, we ask donors to place donations in the bins provided at each location while maintaining a distance of at least six feet from others. More information is available here.

If you have a large donation requiring special arrangements or a question about a donation, please email our supply chain team at [email protected].

 Anyone who would like to make a monetary donation to support our COVID-19 response effort may do so here.
