Ways you can help during the COVID-19 pandemic

Make a gift

You can help the Main Line Health team on the front lines during the COVID-19 pandemic by making a gift.

Main Line Health's COVID-19 Employee Emergency Fund will support our health care team with financial relief to cover personal expenses including childcare, housing, commuting costs and wellness needs. By providing financial relief to our employees, Main Line Health can continue to address our patient care and community health needs as we respond to the rapidly evolving coronavirus pandemic.


Main Line Health’s COVID-19 Research Fund will support several biomedical scientists at the Lankenau Institute for Medical Research (LIMR) who have pivoted their research toward battling the Coronavirus. In particular, they are advancing studies to better diagnose, treat and prevent COVID-19 infection.


Thank you for your generosity and support as we care for our community during these unprecedented times.

Plasma donation

There has been a lot in the news about using plasma from recovered patients to help sick COVID-19 patients. Although at this time this is an unproven therapy, it may be a treatment option for some patients, and you can help. If you are a patient who has recovered from COVID-19 and want to help others, visit the American Red Cross donation site for more information. To learn more about plasma or blood donation during COVID-19, visit the Well Ahead Blog.


If you have items to donate, please email covidsupplydonations@mlhs.org and a member of the team will respond. We have received a tremendous outpouring of support from our community wanting to help the Main Line Health team on the front lines during the COVID-19 pandemic. As there is a shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) across the country, we would greatly appreciate any donations of the following:

  • Gowns
  • Masks
  • N95 masks
  • Goggles
  • Face shields
  • Tyvek coveralls
  • Surgical gowns
  • Isolation gowns
  • Gloves
