Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage, Alaska has found a number of inventive options for donating items they cannot use at the ministry. They donate to the “Arc of Anchorage” which supports individuals with developmental disabilities. They give furnishings to Habitat for Humanity. They donate items that are in disrepair to “Anchorage re:MADE” who repairs and resells while supporting people in times of need. They donate items to the ACE lending closet, which helps provide medical supplies to individuals who need them. They partner with a local company, Alpine Fit, that is using blue surgical wrap to make masks in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. They partner with a local company to take rag laundry. And they recycle within the ministry, with a process to see if any item can be used in another department before it is donated!
