Altru Health System, a Grand Forks-based medical system, is seeking assistance from the community in the form of donations of items during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Altru is accepting the donation of homemade masks for their patients and visitors as extra personal protection. The health system asks that any donated masks cover the nose and mouth area. Those wishing to donate are asked to contact Brittany Caillier by e-mail at bcaillieraltru [dot] org to schedule donation drop-off.
In addition, Altru is accepting PPE, such as masks or gloves, from other industries such as dental offices and schools of nursing. Those wishing to donate PPE items are asked to contact Brenda Pauley-Colter by e-mail at bpauley-colteraltru [dot] org if interested in donating these types of supplies.
