Before COVID-19, UDS consistently implemented high standards of health and safety with our use of universal precautions and disinfectant/sanitation protocols. Now with the COVID-19 virus, all employees and participants adhere to greater levels of precautionary behavior, hygiene and sanitation during their program services.

Kathy Flack, our recruitment/staffing coordinator, sews face masks and gives them to new hires at UDS. We are thankful for her and the many other masked superheroes in the community who have made masks and donated them to us.

We are still accepting donations of face masks but would also appreciate cash donations and:

  • Hand sanitizer
  • Disinfectant wipes
  • Paper towels
  • Kleenex

There is a no-contact drop box for donations located at the main entrance of 701 S. Main Street in Akron. Donations can be dropped off between 8 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Monday-Friday. Thank you to all the heroes who help keep our employees and the individuals served by UDS safe and healthy.
