CLEVELAND, Ohio (WJW) – Since schools are closed temporarily, they don’t need the supplies they’ve had stocked at their nursing stations.

That’s how the Cleveland Metro School District is able to make a big donation to city and county health departments.

Protective masks, gloves, sanitizer, thermometers, and antiseptic wipes will be going to those who need it most.

The items will be distributed Tuesday morning.

Tri-C was also loading up supplies to be donated to our local health department.

Health workers have reported mask shortages around the world.


Cuyahoga County has a donation collection point. If you have any of the following items, you can drop them off at 2501 Harvard Ave. in Newburgh Heights between 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p m. Monday through Friday.

  • N95 masks
  • Surgical masks
  • Isolation Gowns
  • Eye protection
  • Face shields
  • Nitrile gloves
  • Disinfecting wipes
  • Hand sanitizer
