Community Donating Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and Assisting in the Coronavirus Fight
Many in our community have reached out asking how they can create and donate masks and/or hospital gowns to EJGH. We are happy to accept your donation, sterilize the donated masks and/or hospital gowns and use them in appropriate settings.
In keeping with Parish and State “Distancing” guidelines, we ask that you pull up to the front circular entrance of the Hospital, call 504-503-6278, and let the caller know the color and make of your vehicle. You will remain in your car and a masked EJGH team member will come retrieve the masks and/or hospital gowns. Donations are being accepted Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Together, we will overcome this, and all crisis’.
Community Assistance Requested
EJGH is seeking volunteers and a space adequate for an assembly line to convert plastic material we have into Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Volunteers need only be able to follow a pattern. To volunteer your time or a space, email Beth Lacoste at firstname.lastname@example.org.
