How do I donate or sell supplies, such as masks, hand sanitizer, or other items from my company to MUSC Health?
As a state-supported institution, MUSC Health must follow established procurement processes. Naturally, certain types of supplies must be verified as sterile or we are not permitted to purchase or accept them as donations. If you are interested in making donations of goods, please send an email to email@example.com. A response will be provided within a 24-hour business day.
Where can I drop off supplies for donation to MUSC Health?
Donations may be dropped off at 4295 Arco Lane Charleston, SC 29418, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. MUSC employees may drop off donations before their shift on the 8th floor of the Main Hospital extension, formerly the Children's NICU space. Any donations collection sites must be discussed, vetted and agreed to with a hospital supply chain team member before being disclosed. Individual MUSC or MUSC Health team members are not able to declare sites for drop-off without permission from supply chain, public safety and hospital security leaders.
Is MUSC currently accepting hand-sewn masks?
While MUSC care providers are not currently using hand-sewn masks, we are accepting these donations. The appropriate use of these cloth masks will be evaluated by infection control and infectious disease experts. If hand-sewn masks become necessary, they will be sanitized and sterilized before entering circulation.
How can I support MUSC's physicians, nurses and other employees by donating food?
When MUSC receives donated goods and services, including food, appropriate precautions must be in place to ensure the safety of all involved. If you are interested in making donations of food – either in bulk or meals for MUSC employees – please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. A response will be provided within a 24-hour business day.
