Wake County Accepting Donations Of Cleaning Supplies, Protective Equipment

Residents with extra cleaning supplies and protective equipment can donate them to Wake County to help protect first responders and public-facing service staff involved in the COVID-19 response. The county’s supply is running low, so it’s encouraging anyone who may have a surplus to donate. 

“We’re completely out of spray cleaner, and our stock of masks and gloves is so limited that we can’t fulfill all the requests coming in from our partner agencies,” said Darrell Alford, Wake County Emergency Operations Center manager. “Donations from the public will go along way to helping increase our supply and keep our employees healthy and safe.”

The county is accepting the following items: 

  • Hand sanitizer
  • Disinfectant spray and wipes
  • N95 face masks (no cloth or homemade masks)
  • Exam gloves
  • Antibacterial soap

Those interested in donating should call 919-856-6946 or email volunteer-donations@wakeeoc.com.

Only unused or unopened items can be accepted at this time. Wake County staff will work with residents who donate to arrange a time to pick up or drop off the supplies.
