Angels Wear GownsVOLUNTEER INSTRUCTION SHEETThank you Angels Wear Gowns Volunteer! You’re now part of a Michigan community of volunteers protecting our front-line heroes in need of hospital approved isolation gowns. Since early April we have delivered 4,000 gowns, and approving hospitals include: 30+ SE and Metro Detroit facilities such as Henry Ford Hospitals, Beaumont, St. Joseph’s Mercy, Ascension Flint, EMS, County Jails, Nursing Homes, etc. and with your help, we’ll deliver thousands more until these gowns are no longer needed.We are awed and inspired by your generous heart and hands. Without you, then who? So THANK YOU for responding to this critical PPE shortage by saying yes to this work. We are looking for businesses to donate materials, so please reach through your networks to help us secure material or financial donations.
INSTRUCTIONS: Please read this sheet carefully PRIOR to making your gowns. Extreme Safe Handling + Preparing a Sanitized Space Please use EXTREME safe hygiene while handling all materials and disinfect any surfaces or tools your materials touch, as well as the box containing the plastic roll. Once you finish a gown, immediately roll it up and tie with strips of plastic cut from the excess and place into a clean plastic bag and store in a clean space. Each hospital also has their own protocol to sanitize donated items once received. Many CLEAN and WASHED hands make light work! What You’ll Need 10×100 4-mil plastic roll, gown template, heavy duty black duct tape, a very large table (or tables pushed together), scissors, clips (clothespins work best), permanent marker.

After You Complete Your Gowns After you’ve made ALL of your gowns, please contact your lead organizer to coordinate gown drop-off. We will either collect them at one designated spot or coordinate a drop-off to a requesting facility to reduce the number of visits to hospital drop-off sites. We’re fielding requests daily, we appreciate your patience with this! If You Receive a Request for Donation Please direct the facility to https://findthehelpers.us/ they can enter their request for all PPE through this site. Please take photos and tag #AngelsWearGowns! This will inspire and encourage your fellow volunteers and in other communities as well as spread hope and love in our small corner of this world! Questions? Please contact your lead organizer, thank you!
