NORMAN – The Norman Chamber of Commerce has formed a donation collection program to receive personal protective equipment for the Norman Regional Health System.

“I know everyone is looking for ways they can safely help their neighbor during this crisis,” said Scott Martin, president and CEO of the Norman Chamber of Commerce. “Our local health care professionals need supplies so they can better serve their patients. By participating in this effort, we can all chip in during this critical time.”

The chamber, in partnership with the NRHS Foundation and Cleveland County, has set up a donation drop-off location for individuals to donate needed items including masks, protective isolation gown, super sani-cloth germicidal disposable wipes, temporal scanner thermometers, protective eyewear, mini-tipped swabs, Germicidal Bleach4 Clorox, face shields and hand sanitizer with 70% alcohol.

“Personal protective equipment and medical products are in short supply in Oklahoma and across our nation,” said NRHS Foundation Director Erin Barnhart. “We need the community’s assistance to support our health care professionals who are continuing the high level of care within our Norman Regional facilities. To help with their fight against this pandemic, please donate any amount of the needed supplies.”

Supplies can be dropped off at the Cleveland County Fairgrounds, 615 E. Robinson St., at the south side of the arena, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 3-5 p.m.
