How You Can Help

Many kind members of our community have contacted us asking how they can help Blount Memorial physicians and staff in the fight against COVID-19.

Here’s How You Can Help:

1. Making Cloth Masks

Guidelines for Homemade Masks:

- Material – 100 percent cotton, double-sewn with stabilizer; also needs a metal piece at bridge of the nose measuring roughly 4”; no restrictions on colors, patterns, etc. of cotton fabric

- Size – Measures about 8” wide and 4” tall, with straps being 16-18” at each of the four corners (straps preferred over elastic loops for comfort/durability)

2. Donation of Supplies

Blount Memorial also is asking local businesses and individuals if they have extra supplies, that they consider donating them to the hospital.

Items Most Needed:

- Masks of any kind

- Sani-Wipes (wipes used to clean down surfaces often found in schools, daycares and gyms)

-Gloves

To donate or for more information, contact:
