You Can Help UPMC Respond to COVID-19 

UPMC is committed to the health and safety of its entire community as the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds. We are humbled by the way our neighbors have come together wanting to support our efforts and have created a way for you to help.

UPMC COVID-19 Donations Procedure

UPMC is committed to doing everything within its power to ensure a safe environment for our patients and staff. We have enough supply of personal protective equipment and cleaning solutions to meet current demands across UPMC, and we acquire new supplies daily.

We appreciate the outpouring of support from the community interested in donating supplies to ensure we are prepared for the potential rise in COVID-19 cases across the regions we serve.




Personal Protective Equipment and Cleaning Supplies

Sewn Cloth Masks

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, like grocery stores and pharmacies, especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.

The CDC also advises the use of simple, cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and to help prevent people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others. Visit the CDC’s website for more information on cloth masking.

Our top priority is keeping our patients and staff safe. We will gladly accept sewn masks at this time to help ensure that all UPMC patients, visitors, and non-clinical personnel have access to masks at all times. No in-person donations will be accepted unless prescheduled, but donations may be mailed to:

405 Keystone Drive
Warrendale, PA, 15086
