Staples' retail locations across Cleveland and the Northeast Ohio area will now serve as drop-off locations for critical PPE (personal protective equipment) that will go directly to University Hospitals Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital.

Donations of new, unused, unopened personal protective equipment such as N95 respirator face masks, disposable face masks, face-shields, eye protective wear, isolation or surgical gowns can be dropped off at participating Staples locations.

As the COVID-19 crisis deepens, caregivers at UH Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital are on the frontline to help care for patients. Critical donations are needed to provide protective gear, equipment, charitable care and support services so we can continue to care for the very sickest patients and their families with excellence.
