WAUKESHA — ProHealth Care is welcoming donations of handsewn masks and other personal protective equipment as well as hand sanitizer.

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 Covid-19. Many individuals and businesses use these products.

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 front doors and the 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.

For large donations of these products, please call (262) 696-0464, or send an email to leslie.kleba@phci.org.
