Please Donate Personal Protective Equipment to Osceola Community Health Services
The Iowa Department of Public Health is urging businesses and organizations to donate personal protective equipment by contacting their local public health department.
“COVID-19 is an unprecedented public health disaster, and stocks of personal protective equipment for health care providers are being used rapidly,” said Ken Sharp, division director of Acute Disease Prevention, Emergency Response and Environmental Health. “Organizations that have extra supplies that aren’t immediately needed should consider donating them to help those on the front line of this disease.”
Any type of health care personal protective equipment will be welcomed, especially gloves, gowns, eye protection and masks. Local public health and emergency management officials will work to address needs locally and beyond.
For people who wish to donate PPE to Osceola Community Health Services, Director Pam Juber says they only need to deliver it to the Public Health office, located at 115 Cedar Lane, Sibley, IA 51249. Once received, Pam will coordinate with local healthcare facilities. You can reach Osceola Community Health Services at 712-754-4611.
