GTP Foundation Accepts Donations For COVID-19

Grand Traverse Pavilions is accepting the following donated items through the Pavilions Foundation, and the Pavilions is currently working with local businesses to secure additional items at a fair market rate:  Isolation Gowns, Full Seal Goggles and Face Shields, as well as, Surgical medical masks.  “We are aware that many local community members and companies want to help during this critical time, however, many health organizations are struggling with how to accept handmade items, because they potentially pose a health risk for the very crisis that they are seeking to support.” States Deborah Allen, Foundation Director for Grand Traverse Pavilions. 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention “If you are NOT sick: You do not need to wear a facemask unless you are caring for someone who is sick (and they are not able to wear a facemask). Facemasks may be in short supply and they should be saved for caregivers.  In regards to the recent outpouring of interest in making and donating the cloth masks, the CDC stated the following regarding the use of non-approved masks or homemade masks “As a last resort.  It may be necessary for Health Care Personnel to use masks that have never been evaluated or approved by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) or homemade masks. However, caution should be exercised when considering this option.”  For this reason, Grand Traverse Pavilions is not approving the use of the homemade masks at this time.  Individuals who are making the masks are asked to not bring supplies of the masks to the facility, because at this time there is no system in place to accept, sanitize, and store the masks.  However, it is our understanding that Goodwill Industries is accepting the cloth masks and is managing the supply of masks for the community.  While donations that support critical needs are allowed under the Michigan’s Stay Home, Stay Safe order, we are asking you please understand our position to not accept the masks at this time is based on our concern to ensure the safety of our donors, staff, and residents.”

We remain extremely grateful to those individuals who have offered their financial support to the Grand Traverse Pavilions Foundation.  These funds, if marked COVID-19 in the memo section, will be directed for specific use to assist with the current crisis to help purchase essential medical supplies, as well as to help support our residents and medical staff during this crisis. Donations can be made at and clicking on the COVID-19 option.  If individuals have questions regarding potential donations of medical equipment and supplies you are encouraged to call the Grand Traverse Pavilions Foundation at 231-932-3019.
