How can you help?

Adirondack Health has been humbled by the many generous offers from community members looking for ways to help during the spread of COVID-19. We are deeply grateful. We know that working together we will overcome this crisis.

Donate helpful items

If you have any of these items to donate or would like to pitch in to sew masks or headbands, please contact Hannah Hanford at or call 518-637-4324.

We would appreciate donations of:

  • Boxes of unopened surgical masks
  • Boxes of unopened N-95 masks
  • Boxes of unopened non-latex gloves
  • Unopened safety goggles or glasses


Many sewers have expressed an interest in helping. We are also looking for headbands similar to the ones pictured below to help out our nursing staff. When our staff wear masks all day, their ears can get sore easily, so these headbands have buttons on them to hold the masks in place while stopping the strain on ears. Find your favorite headband pattern, and sew large buttons on the sides near the ears - quick and easy!

If you made headbands that you'd like to donate, please contact Hannah Hanford at or call 518-897-2348.


Consider donating blood. Many blood drives have been canceled due to the pandemic, and blood shortages are expected. If you are feeling well and are in Plattsburgh, stop by the Adirondack Regional Blood Center at 85 Plaza Blvd, Suite 102, to donate.

Thank you

The following people and organizations have been beyond generous in helping Adirondack Health fight the pandemic in a time of extreme financial uncertainty. We thank each and every one of you for your important gift.
