Donate Your Graduation Gown to Healthcare Heroes - New Rochelle

Medical facilities are lacking personal protective equipment (PPE) in the fight against COVID-19. Healthcare workers are using anything they can to protect themselves and their patients—even makeshift trash bag gowns. Graduation gowns are more effective than other PPE alternatives given their length, sleeves, and easy zippered access. Gowns4Good is protecting healthcare workers by upcycling graduation gowns. Whether your graduation gown is collecting dust in the back of your closet or is no longer needed for a 2020 commencement, you can donate yours to help protect a healthcare worker. Gowns should be placed in a sealed bag, like a Ziploc bag. Express interest below to receive more information and directions to the local drop-off site in New Rochelle.
