Goodwill Dallas Accepting Donations Of PPE, Including Handmade Masks

Goodwill Dallas, a leading social enterprise, is stepping up to support the Dallas medical community. Goodwill has partnered with Dallas County Health & Human Services, Methodist Health System and Parkland Health & Hospital System to collect critically-needed personal protective equipment (PPE) – including homemade masks. The drive will run through Thursday, April 30.

“We are really good at collecting donated items. We normally do it to help provide jobs and job training for individuals with disabilities and other barriers to employment. But today, we can use those same capabilities to support our community’s response to fighting COVID-19,” said Tim Heis, President & CEO of Goodwill Industries of Dallas.

North Texas residents who have new and unopened personal protective equipment, as well as homemade masks, are encouraged to donate at any of Goodwill’s 23 Donation Centers across Collin, Dallas and Denton counties.

Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price expressed gratitude to the community for supporting our healthcare professionals. “We’re thankful to our friends at Goodwill and our generous community for coming together in this critical moment to deliver these much-needed items into the hands of our local hospitals,” Commissioner Price said.

Dallas County Health & Human Services, Methodist Health System and Parkland currently have an adequate supply of products as well as plans to handle any spike in patients who have COVID-19. This measure is meant to simply add even more safety stock to their supply and provide a channel for the public to help.

“We have a bird’s eye view of how COVID-19 is affecting our community and we are prepared to deploy resources quickly, including these donations, to where they are needed most in our community,” said James R. Pogue, Sr., Strategic National Stockpile Coordinator for Dallas County Health & Human Services.
