  1. Here is info from my doctor at Kaiser Oakland about donating supplies there. I’m sure Richmond Kaiser has a similar protocol.

    Thank you for your generous offer to donate unused supplies to Kaiser Permanente. We want to assure you that we have the necessary supplies to safely provide care to our patients. But as we are battling the COVID-19 outbreak, we are gratefully accepting donations of personal protective equipment (PPE) as well as other supplies. All donations must be unused and reviewed for infection disease approved standards.
    The Oakland Medical Center will accept these donations:
    • Goggles (non-vented)
    • Face shields
    • Hand Sanitizer
    • Masks: N95 respirator, surgical, and isolation masks
    • Isolation or surgical gowns
    • Any Clorox or Sani-cloth wipes

    Donations can be mailed to: Kaiser Permanente 275 West MacArthur Blvd Oakland, CA 94611 Attention: Hospital Command Center

    Or dropped off at the Oakland Medical Center, Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Kaiser Permanente 275 West MacArthur Blvd Oakland, CA 94611

    This drop off location is on W. MacArthur Boulevard, at the Oakland Medical Center. It is a curb side drop off along side the Oakland Hospital between Howe Street and Piedmont Avenue. A staff member will be present to accept your donation. If you have a large amount of goods to donate or need to make arrangements after hours please call us at (510) 545 3446.
