Items we need now

Personal Care/Cleaning Items

We are in need of hand sanitizer, Clorox or Lysol wipes, rubber gloves, hand soap in dispensers and face masks. We are aware that many of these items are unavailable, especially face masks and hand sanitizer. We have learned how to make both items if we have 91% (or above) alcohol, aloe vera gel, strong paper towels, rubber bands. An additional item we could use for our home care services are quality disposable aprons to cover the front of the aide’s clothing as they work within each client’s home. They can then dispose before going to the next home. Finally, bar soap is needed for our seniors. The products will be used by our home care aides and nurses who are providing services through our home care agency. It is critical that we take the necessary precautions to keep our home care staff healthy so that they do not pass the virus on to the seniors they care for who are most at risk for severe complications related to COVID-19. We also do not want to have any interruption in the home care services we provide due to staff illness. In addition we would like to be able to distribute them to the seniors we serve through our food pantry. Although we have discontinued pick up on site for our pantry, we are distributing prepacked bags to seniors via home delivery provided by MNM staff and volunteers. Including cleaning and sanitizing products in these bags would provide ease of mind for seniors who are anxious about becoming ill and promote them staying in their homes and not going out to purchase items they may need. Finally, we will use some of these products to protect staff at our center who are interacting with individuals coming for crisis assistance for food, and other support. Items can be mailed or delivered Monday-Friday from 9-5, but please sign up to let us know in advance.
