HELP TRILLIUM HEALTH PARTNERS RESPOND TO COVID-19 BY DONATING PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT


Today we face an unprecedented health crisis, and Trillium Health Partners (THP) needs your help to respond to the coronavirus as it unfolds in real time. Having appropriate supplies of personal protective equipment for our frontline staff is essential to ensure staff remain healthy and therefore are able to continue to provide care during this extraordinary challenge.


Why we need PPE donations:

While the province is now sourcing PPE collectively, donations are still required from our community to respond rapidly to our local need, including the expected surge of patients at THP. PPE is necessary to protect our frontline staff. And, while this is a THP focused initiative, THP is continuing to work with its partners, including the Region of Peel and William Osler Health System, to ensure that inventory goes where it is needed most.


Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

We welcome donations of PPE.  At the moment, we are looking for*:

  • N95 masks (8110S, 8210, 9210+)
  • Surgical masks (Level 1, 2 & 3)
  • KN95 masks
  • Hand sanitizer (with DIN)
  • Gloves of all sizes
  • Isolation gowns
  • Health care-grade disinfectant wipes (two kinds, bleach and hydrogen peroxide)
  • Scrubs
  • Handmade PPE
  • 3D Printed Ear Savers
  • 3D Printers (click here for requirements)

*This list will continue to evolve and will be updated as such. 

If you wish to donate other items to the hospital not listed under PPE (e.g. equipment), please e-mail DonatePPE@thp.ca.


PPE must meet the following criteria to be donated:

  • PPE must be in unopened boxes or packaging
  • PPE cannot be expired based on an identifiable date on the package
  • The source or manufacturer must be known
  • Handmade PPE donations cannot be used, preworn or soiled
  • Items like hand lotions and soap must be scent-free
  • Hand sanitizers must have a DIN (drug identifying number)

If the PPE donation passes the criteria above, it can be donated. Note that all manufactured and handmade PPE donations will go through a quality assurance check to verify manufacturer, SKU#, expiry date, usability and packaging check by the receiving department upon drop-off.
