ANN ARBOR -- Some walked, some drove and other rode bikes to bring whatever medical supplies they had to donate to UM Hospitals amid the coronavirus outbreak.
The donation center at the North Campus Research Complex on the corner of Huron parkway and Plymouth road in Ann Arbor opened on Saturday at noon. Within the first two hours, volunteers had already collected donations from almost 150 cars.
"It's very touching to see so many people," said Katie Doyle, a Clinical Assistant Professor at UM's School of Social Work. Doyle, along with several other volunteers put on their protective gear and spent their day collecting donations.
