SALT LAKE CITY, April 6, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- As the COVID-19 crises deepens, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals® is committed to ensuring 170 children's hospitals have the resources they need to care for the most vulnerable kids. Critical donations are needed to provide protective gear, equipment, charitable care and support services at Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Staples US Retail has partnered with CMN Hospitals to collect personal protective care equipment or donations to help local member hospitals fund their greatest needs.
Donations of new, unused, unopened personal protective equipment such as N95 respirator face masks, disposable face masks, face-shield, eye protective wear, isolation or surgical gowns can be dropped off at participating Staples stores. Donations will be shipped to the local Children's Miracle Network Hospital to help caregivers. Protective gear is essential to ensure the safety of hospital workers who are caring for the most vulnerable patients at children's hospitals.
"We are grateful for Staples help to ensure local children's hospitals have the resources they need. Kids can't wait to get treatment. When you donate personal protection equipment or funds through our partnership with Staples, CMN Hospitals are able to keep caregivers and kids safe during this crisis," says Teri Nestel, Interim President & CEO of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
