We are extremely grateful for the overwhelming support of our community in response to COVID-19. To keep up with the volume of inquiries and offerings, here is a list of ways you can help your local Halton Healthcare hospital at this time:

One of the best ways to support Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital is by making a donation. We have established an Emergency COVID-19 Response Fund where funds raised will support the most urgent needs of each hospital. You can make an online donation here.
Currently, we are only accepting items that have been purchased in Canada or are vendors licensed to sell Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in Canada that meet Health Canada’s current regulations.
All items must be in factory sealed unopened boxes and must not be expired.
Current PPE items we are accepting:
- 3M 1870+
- 3M 1860
- 3M 1860S
- 3M 8210
- AAMI Level 1 to 4 surgical and procedure gowns accepted

As our needs change, this list will be updated.
