As donation items continue to pour in from the community to help healthcare providers working on the front line of the COVID-19 pandemic, Stony Brook University Hospital is also accepting items that will help comfort patients and enhance their experience while they are missing their loved ones and the comforts of home. These include puzzles, activity books, pens, colored pencils, sleep masks, aromatherapy, ear plugs and other quality of life items to make those hospitalized, as well as those caring for them, feel as at ease as possible.
Stony Brook is also continuing to accept donations of iPads for telehealth, medical supplies and other comfort care items such as gum, lip balm, tissues and snacks.
To maintain social distancing and safety, appointments are being scheduled for donation drop off. Please contact: Joan Dickinson, Stony Brook University Community Relations Director, at COVID19donations@stonybrook.edu or call 631.219.0603 to schedule an appointment.
