ProHealth Care welcomes donations of masks and other personal protective equipment


ProHealth Care's Administrative OfficesProHealth Care is welcoming donations of masks and other personal protective equipment as well as hand sanitizer.

"As we prepare to care for our patients and our community during this public health crisis, supplies of personal protective equipment are critically low in Wisconsin and around the country," said Mary Baker, ProHealth’s chief clinical operations officer. "Some of the products we need to protect our health care professionals also are used in other fields, and we would be grateful for donations at this time."

Donated products must be new, in unopened packaging. ProHealth Care is accepting donations of the following items:

  • Masks – Both N95 respirator and ear loop surgical masks. These masks are sometimes used in construction, painting, dentistry, veterinary medicine and school settings.
  • Eye protection – Goggles and safety glasses. These are used in a wide variety of industries as well as by woodworkers, hobbyists and painters.
  • Hand sanitizer – Hand sanitizers that contain at least 60% alcohol are most effective in preventing the spread of the coronavirus. Many individuals and businesses use these products.

If you would like to make cloth masks for ProHealth, please read "ProHealth Care welcomes donations of handsewn face masks" and follow the pattern found at ProHealthCare.org/MaskPattern.

Donations from the community may be dropped off at ProHealth Care’s administrative building at N17W24100 Riverwood Drive in Pewaukee, off Pewaukee Road just north of I-94. Donations can be left between the entrance and lobby doors between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

These donations also can dropped in a designated collection bin on Dopp Street near the loading dock behind ProHealth Waukesha Memorial Hospital on weekdays between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. Please do not linger near the hospital, as emergency vehicles need to be able to use all roadways in and around the hospital. Please exit and return later if an emergency, police or supply vehicle is entering the area.

If you would like to make a large donation of these products, please call 262-696-0464, or send an email to leslie.kleba@phci.org.

Some have asked to provide monetary gifts. Please do not bring monetary gifts to product donation sites. Kindly use this link instead.
