How You Can Help

At North Memorial Health and Maple Grove Hospital we have teams dedicated to caring for our community during the COVID-19 pandemic. As your health family, the health of you and your loved ones is our top priority. Over the past months, many of you have reached out to ask how you can help during this unprecedented time. We are honored to see everyone coming together and want to thank you for your outpouring of support. Below you will find more information about how you can help.

 

Make a Financial Gift

Our doctors, nurses and care teams are already working non-stop in the fight against COVID-19 and we need your help. Please consider donating to our COVID-19 Emergency Fund to help us as we face this pandemic.

Food or Beverage Catering Donations

Food and Beverages

We are unable to accept homemade food or beverage donations at this time. All food or beverage donations must be provided from a restaurant/café, or store bought. Shelf-stable options (food, snacks or beverages that can be safely stored at room temperature in a sealed container) are ideal for distribution to any department, any day on any shift. Healthy or protein-rich snacks are appreciated, but all types of treats are welcome.

Packaging:

Food and beverages must be portioned individually and sealed/wrapped to stop the spread of germs. We request the establishment does this prior to delivery. Items like pizzas and bulk food to share can’t be accepted at this time.

Delivery:

  • Donations will not be accepted without prior authorization and a designated point person.
  • Please provide three options for dates and times of delivery so that our office can coordinate with other donations and distribute food and beverages throughout the hospital to all teams, on a variety of shifts.
  • Due to visitor and entrance restrictions you will be given the name of a point person who will meet you at the main Hospital entrance (designated for visitors) to receive the donation. Please remain in your vehicle and a cart will be brought out to you for the donation.

Thank you everyone in our communities who has stepped up to donate masks, PPE and additional items to support our health care team. We sincerely appreciate your generosity.
