ALLIANCE, Neb. Box Butte General Hospital is asking the community to donate additional protective gear for staff and patients.

Box Butte General Hospital

At the moment, healthcare workers at BBGH have the gear they need to protect themselves during this pandemic.

However, the global demand for PPE (personal protective equipment) supplies does not look to be slowing down and is putting major stress on manufacturers, leaving some hospitals without the supplies they need to protect their workers on the frontline.

In an effort to prevent a shortage of supplies, BBGH is asking the community for help. The supplies listed below are items the hospital would like to receive:

• N95 masks
• Bleach wipes
• Sani wipes
• Goggles
• Face shields
• Lysol spray
• Travel size hand sanitizer containers (unused/new)

Please direct all donations to the Alliance Chamber of Commerce between 1:00pm to 3:00pm from Monday through Friday.

BBGH is asking for new, in-box, or unopened/unused supplies to keep germs to a minimum.

Please do not bring items directly to the hospital, drop them off at the Chamber and record the time and date.

Every donation adds a sense of security and safety for both staff and patients.
