Our healthcare workers are giving so much of themselves during the global COVID-19 pandemic. If you’re looking to return the favor, there are ways you can give back and help right now.

We’re grateful for the local restaurants who’ve donated meals and snacks to our healthcare professionals. If you’d like to donate food, snacks or gift cards, email CommunityBenefit@AtriumHealth.org so we can help coordinate your delivery.

All food donations must follow these guidelines:

  • Food should be prepared in a commercial kitchen and individually wrapped
  • Deliveries should be double bagged
  • Food must be delivered outside the facility
  • “Communal” foods like pizza are discouraged

If you’d prefer to give back by donating funds, there are causes you can help immediately.

Tip: No matter where you choose to donate funds, always make sure you’re going through a reliable organization and website. To keep you safe, Atrium Health will never call to solicit donations, and we’ll only point you to organizations and websites we trust. Atrium Health Foundation is the only charitable administrator for Atrium Health.

As COVID-19 cases increase, we need help getting necessary supplies to low-income COVID-19 patients being cared for through Atrium Health Hospital at Home. Many of them don’t have the means or support to get cleaning products, diapers, food or medications. We have a COVID-19 supply delivery program that can deliver critical items quickly. This allows these patients to remain safely at home, so they don’t spread the virus and can focus on getting better.

If you’re interested in donating, here are the items these patients need:

  • Disinfecting wipes, sprays and cleaning products
  • Facial tissues
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Paper towels
  • Toilet paper
  • Dishwasher soap (pods preferred)
  • Laundry soap (pods preferred)
  • Thermometers
  • Newborn or size 1 diapers

Email CommunityBenefit@AtriumHealth.org if you have questions about donation items and delivery sites.

To slow the spread of COVID-19, activities everywhere have been canceled. Unfortunately, this also includes some blood drives. Fewer blood drives can mean a blood shortage, which is scary news for patients fighting cancer, victims of car accidents and those who need surgery.

By giving blood, you can make a difference and even save a life. Visit OneBlood and make an appointment.

If you’ve recovered from COVID-19, donating your plasma could help save lives.

After recovering from COVID-19, you have antibodies in your plasma (part of your blood) that can fight the virus. This is called convalescent plasma, and it’s being tested as a treatment for COVID-19. Infusing convalescent plasma into patients that are seriously sick could give their immune system the boost it needs to fight the virus.

Donating plasma is similar to donating blood, and a single donation may save as many as 3 lives.

You might be eligible to donate convalescent plasma if you:

  • Are at least 18 years old and weigh at least 110 pounds
  • Have a positive COVID-19 test result (either a positive diagnostic test while sick or a positive antibody test after recovering)
  • Have fully recovered from COVID-19 (symptom-free for 14 days with a negative COVID-19 test, or symptom-free for 28 days without a negative COVID-19 test)
  • Are in good health and feeling well (even if you’re being treated for a chronic condition)
  • Have not gotten the COVID-19 vaccine

If you meet these criteria and you’re interested in becoming a plasma donor, visit OneBlood to get more information and register.
