Help Us Help Our Community Support UM Charles Regional Medical Center During the COVID-19 Crisis


If you’ve been thinking about ways to support UM Charles Regional Medical Center’s efforts to fight the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Southern Maryland, the CRMC Foundation invites you to take part in “Thankful Thursdays.”

Every Thursday, the Foundation will be collecting supplies and donations that will directly support the hospital’s efforts against this pandemic. 

How You Can Help

The CRMC Foundation is currently accepting donations of:

Where to Donate

We’ve ensured that Thankful Thursdays activities will maintain our hospital’s current no-visitor policy. Beginning April 2, the CRMC Foundation will operate a safe, curbside donations collection site between the hours of 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. The office is located at the following address:

Irene Davis Pavilion
6 Garrett Avenue
La Plata, MD 20646
(Just up from the La Plata Library and across from the Medical Center)

The CRMC Foundation will collect donor information and provide a charitable receipt upon drop-off. 

If you would like to make a donation while maintaining self-quarantine regulations and the recent executive order from Gov. Hogan, please contact us; we’d be happy to make a pickup while maintaining social distancing protocols. And please be assured — staff operating our Thankful Thursdays will wear appropriate protective gear and maintain social distancing as well!

Monetary donations to the COVID-19 Response Fund can also be made online through the CRMC Foundation website. For more information, please call the CRMC Foundation office at (301) 609-4132 or email

Update (5/13/20): Thank you to everyone who has created and/or donated face shields for our staff. Due to current supply levels, we are no longer accepting donations of face shields. Please see the “How You Can Help” section for details on donation items we are still actively accepting at this time.

  1. Dear Susan,

    I want to start a community fund to feed the night shift at the hospital. Apple Spice would like to know how many people typically work the graveyard shift. I want to do this through social media. Any information you can give me that would help would be appreciated. Of course we will also apply the 20% discount. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

    Hi, Dawn. Thank you so much for your consideration! We’ve passed along your contact information to Susan and the team at the CRMC Foundation, and someone should be in touch with you shortly. Thanks again!

    Are baked goods required to be store bought or can they be homemade? Understand either way, just want to get it right. Great effort!

  4. UM Charles Regional Medical Center

    Hi, Rebecca. Thanks so much for your interest in getting involved! We can accept store-bought and homemade items; however, homemade items cannot be communal and should be individually labeled. Additionally, please be sure to indicate any potentially sensitive ingredients (e.g., nuts, etc.). If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to give the CRMC Foundation team a call at (301) 609-4132. Thanks again!
