Public Health Requesting Donations of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

GREENE COUNTY, OH – Due to COVID-19, officials at Greene County Public Health are asking for donations of personal protective equipment (PPE) from businesses throughout Greene County to help keep staff and patients at local hospitals, clinics, and long term care facilities, as well as our first responders, healthy and safe throughout the COVID-19 response.

Kim Caudill, Emergency Response Coordinator, at Greene County Public Health, stated “We know there is high demand at this time for PPE; however, some of our local hospitals are only days away from running out of PPE, which would be nothing short of disastrous. A shortage of PPE in our county puts our medical personnel at risk of becoming infected, sidelined, and maybe even hospitalized themselves, at precisely the moment our communities are most heavily depending on them”.

Greene County is encouraging medical practices such as veterinary clinics, dentists, elective surgery centers and other providers to donate surplus PPE to support first responders and critical operations occurring in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. We are asking for donations of the following items:

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

If you can donate, please contact Kim at 937-374-5627 or email her at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and arrange for a pick up or delivery.
