We greatly appreciate the outpouring of support we’ve received from community members offering to donate personal protective equipment (PPE) during the coronavirus pandemic. Please follow these guidelines to help our team members streamline donations and to avoid disrupting critical operations and patient care. If you still have questions after reviewing the information below, please email

Donating medical PPE

We glady accept medical supplies and PPE to help keep frontline workers safe.

Priority PPE

We’re accepting donations of the following items. Please note that gear should be brand new (never used) and in its original packaging.

  • N95 respirator masks (high priority; 3M 1860 N95s preferred)
  • Manufactured surgical and medical masks
  • Nitrile gloves
  • Disinfectant wipes for hard surfaces

We continue to revisit these guidelines frequently based on the best available evidence and will update this list if anything changes.

Where to donate

We can accept donations by delivery and by mail. Please donate at the facility nearest you; we will distribute donations throughout our locations as PPE needs arise.

Drop-off instructions

We’re accepting drop-offs by appointment. Please call the Association of Volunteers at each location to arrange details.

By mail

To send PPE by mail, please address your package to “Children’s Hospital Colorado, c/o Association of Volunteers.” Visit the links above for each location’s mailing address. 


Do you accept cloth face coverings?

With the changes in guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, we no longer accept or distribute cloth face coverings. We now accept medical grade masks only. Thank you to the hundreds of community members that made and donated thousands of cloth face coverings early in the pandemic!


If you have questions, please email and our team will get back to you.

Thank you for your generosity!
