Ways You Can Help Care for the Community

Panera Bread Meals for Heroes

We are grateful for the outpouring of requests from our community to help during this COVID-19 pandemic. And we’re humbled by your prayers, notes and well wishes that uplift our hospital and medical staff. So many within our community have asked about ways to help in this time of need.

Food Donations

Our staff is grateful for food donations that have been delivered during the pandemic. If you are thinking about making a food donation, please contact Nutrition Services Manager Chris Kozick at (616) 394-3584 or by email: ckozick@hollandhospital.org. We ask that all food donations go through Chris. For the safety of our teams, we accept individually boxed or wrapped meals, snacks and goodies. No family style or loose food items.

We are truly in this together. With a national shortage of protective gear and supplies, we are turning to you, our community, for your support to help our health care workers further prepare for the days and weeks ahead.

We are also accepting financial donations and your generous offers to hand-make protective masks. Please follow these instructions to ensure safety and quality.
