How to Help

The outpouring of support from the individuals, organizations and community groups has been heart-warming and appreciated.

Thank you.

COVID-19 Response FUND

In order to help address the specific needs related to the Cayuga Health System response to the COVID-19 pandemic we have established COVID-19 Emergency Response Funds at both Cayuga Medical Center and Schuyler Hospital. Whether it is for supplies, equipment or other costs required for this effort, these funds will be quickly distributed to areas of greatest need, determined by our administration and providers.

Volunteer

One of the greatest things someone can give is their time. We have identified sewing surgical masks as an area where we would gladly accept homemade versions. We have two options available for this right now. We are offering people the option to go on-site at Bartels Hall or Schuyler County Human Services Complex where we have stations set up with appropriate distancing or we can accept masks made from home. 

We are happy to announce that the Tompkins County Health Department is now accepting masks made from home. Cloth masks from home can be donated to the Health Department where they will be distributed to Essential Workers in Tompkins County. For more information about this, please visit the Health Department here.   

If you are an Essential Business and would like to requests masks, click here. 

If you are a community member and need a mask for you or your family, you can request them here

Donations of Food

The outpouring of support we have received has been wonderful and inspirational. We have received several offers of donated food to support our healthcare workers who are on the frontline of this crisis. We continue to be grateful for this and welcome this generosity.

Due to the mandated suspension of visitation by the State of New York and to ensure the safety of all those involved with the care of our patients, we have instituted the following process for accepting food donations at the Cayuga Medical Center:

  1. Donated food should be left on the table provided at the main entrance.
  2. When the food is delivered, a member of our Nutrition and Dining team will be notified so they can distribute appropriately.
  3. Those donating the food will be recognized for their generosity and support.

Thank you for supporting our COVID-19 response.
