IMPORTANT: County Establishes Donation Collection Point for Personal Protective Equipment

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

In case you were unaware, Cuyahoga County has opened a donation collection point in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. The County is encouraging medical practices such as veterinary clinics, dentists, elective surgery centers, and other non-essential medical providers to donate surplus Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to support first responders and critical operations occurring in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. If you have the equipment and are not in those occupations (e.g. nail salons, home woodworkers with masks…) your donations of boxes of this PPE are of course also 100% welcome.

A collection point has been established at the Cuyahoga County Public Works Garage located at 2501 Harvard Ave. Newburgh Heights, OH 44105.

The hours of operation for the collection point are Monday-Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Unopened boxes of the following items will be accepted:

  • N95 masks
  • Surgical masks
  • Gowns
  • Eye protection
  • Face shields
  • Nitrile gloves
  • Disinfecting wipes
  • Hand sanitizer

Only unopened boxes of the above items will be accepted. 

Thank you for your efforts and contributions to support our front-line medical teams who are at serious risk without this critical personal protection equipment. We need them to be healthy and safe for themselves and available to do their vital work in the days to come. It is one of the ways we must do this together!
