Hand Sanitizer Pump Drive

In April, members of the UVA School of Medicine community donated 54 hand pump bottles to fill with hand sanitizer and stock up hospital workstations, residents’ offices, and other major work areas at UVA Hospital. Silverback Distillery graciously produced and donated 10 gallons of hand sanitizer to fill the hand pump bottles, and the bottles are being put to good use at the UVA Hospital keeping our healthcare workers safe. Thanks to our 20+ medical students who donated bottles!

Coffee Shop Support Project 

A grassroots coffee donation campaign that aimed to provide coffee for healthcare workers on the frontlines. Community members can donate money in person or online through participating coffee shops. Donations will benefit local coffee shops during this period of social distancing and provide coffee for Emergency Department employees.

Participating coffee shops:
