Through crisis, comes hope – in ourselves, in others, and in how we collectively care for the most vulnerable among us. Round the clock, our doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals are working diligently to care for patients and do everything possible to stem the tide of COVID-19. But this critical work can’t be accomplished alone.
Acts of generosity and selflessness, large and small, will help us overcome these challenges together as one. To that end, we invite you to participate in our fight against COVID-19. Here’s how:
Join Project Protect, a collaboration between Intermountain Healthcare, the University of Utah, and Latter-Day Saint Charities to provide frontline health workers with medical-grade face masks to protect them from COVID-19. Project Protect will provide all of the materials and instructions - we just need you.

Homemade Cloth Face Coverings
Cloth face coverings are a good way for visitors and non-respiratory patients in our facilities to protect from the spread of disease. Informational guides, patterns, and a list of donation drop-off locations for cloth face coverings is available now. Find out more about how to make your own cloth face covering or how to create and donate homemade cloth face coverings to Intermountain Healthcare caregivers.
People fully recovered from COVID-19 may be able to help critically ill patients. Intermountain Healthcare is participating in an FDA protocol to allow use of blood plasma donated by individuals who fully recovered from COVID-19 and meet other criteria, to treat patients with severe COVID-19. Plasma with COVID-19 antibodies may be able to help patients recover, and this protocol will help us learn more about this promising treatment option.
Bulk Medical Equipment
Due to the surge in need, Intermountain Healthcare is currently accepting bulk donations of medical-grade Personal Protection Equipment (PPEs) and other industrial-grade hospital supplies helpful in an emergency. If you have a business or represent a company that might have such items, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Becky Lloyd at 801-442-3338.
Please note Intermountain is following CDC recommendations to keep our patients and caregivers safe. Due to risks related to exposure and infection, donations such as toys, blankets, stuffed animals, books or other physical items are not being accepted at this time. Instead, please consider giving online.
Intermountain Nutrition Services has provided specific guidance around offers of donated food, including limitations on the types and delivery method. These food safety guidelines are aligned with standards set by the Utah Department of Health. To inquire about a potential food donation, please write to email@example.com.
