In-kind Contributions

Thanks a Million

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, in-kind donations served an immediate and critical role in keeping frontline healthcare workers safe and sustained. We are humbled by the outpouring of PPE, homemade masks, and food support throughout 2020 and early 2021.

We are now able to pivot to in-kind donations that enhance the patient experience.  Periodically we will post special in-kind item drives on the front page of our Foundation website.

If you have questions or would like to discuss a potential in-kind donation, please contact us at: [email protected]

Calling All Crafters

Homemade gifts make a difference in the lives our patients too! Knit or crochet hats keep our tiny patients warm in the NICU, cover the heads of patients receiving chemotherapy, while mittens keep bandaged or casted hands warm in a Minnesota winter.  Hand made 'surgery dolls' are used by our child life specialists to show young patients where their surgery will occur and what to expect for recovery and treatment. The following homemade items are welcome.

  • Adult hats for patients receiving Cancer treatments
  • Newborn or preemies hats for patients in the NICU
  • Crib size or lap size quilts for Pediatrics, Spiritual Care, Home Visiting Nurse Program, and Hospice
  • Surgery Dolls for Pediatrics:  pattern here

Items can be mailed to:

Hennepin Healthcare Foundation, 701 Park Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55415

Questions? Please contact Karin Meier: [email protected]

Volunteer time creating homemade items may qualify for a match by your employer. Check with your HR department. If needed, our tax identification number is 41-0845733.
