Do you have extra medical masks, gloves, wipes, hand sanitizer or other personal protective equipment that you’d be willing to donate to our local frontline health care workers?

People in the community have reached out to ask how they can help Vail Health’s health care workforce on the front line in the fight against COVID-19. Personal protective equipment is an important part of that front line and what is most stressed.

Keep what you need for your family, but we’d love your extras. This will help us increase our supply and allow us to better prepare for various scenarios. Please drop them off at one of these Vail Health or Colorado Mountain Medical locations:
