How to Help During COVID-19

We are grateful for the overwhelming offers of support pouring in from our amazing communities! Many are asking for ways to support our team members and patients. This page will be kept up to date with ways you can help us during the COVID-19 pandemic. Check back regularly for new information on the support we need and thank you for your generosity!

Donate to Support our Health Care Heroes

In these unprecedented times, it takes a village to meet the challenges of COVID-19. Your gift now, more than ever, will be felt. Right now, your generosity will be amplified by a donation matching opportunity. Your $25 donation becomes $50; $150 becomes $300 and so on. Your gift and this match will show what happens when our hearts, our humanity, and our communities rise, as one.

Your support of our Health Care Heroes will help us continue the battle of COVID-19. Your compassionate gift will ensure our doctors, nurses and countless other healthcare workers will have the resources they need to show up every day, for you. We are in this together and, together, we will get through this. Thank you for standing with us; you are at the center of everything we do. This form is temporarily unavailable. To make a donation, call the Foundation at (309) 672-5741.

Masks & Supplies

Handmade Masks

UnityPoint Health is collecting handmade masks. We are currently in need of surgical-style masks with ties or loops. Follow this simple pattern to get started.

If you are more advanced at sewing, we are also accepting Olson Masks following these instructions. If you've already made masks using another pattern, that's OK. 

Learn how to properly care for your handmade mask.

No-Sew Masks

If you want to make a mask for yourself and don't have a sewing machine available, try one of these easy, no-sewing options using either a bandana or an old t-shirt.

Supply Donations

We're also collecting supplies at all drop off locations. Supplies we're currently collecting are:

  • Vacuum bags
  • Elastic 
  • Hair ties 
  • Wax covered string 
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Double-sided adhesive tape (such as dress tape and gorilla tape)
