How you can help

Every contribution is appreciated

Your health is always our top priority. We’re taking extra steps to deliver the safest care possible, and we are humbled by the outpouring of support from our community in our fight against the coronavirus outbreak. Your generous gift will help us protect our clinical teams and ensure they remain at the forefront of care for people in our communities. There are several ways you can contribute, and no contribution is too small.

Financial gifts

Every gift helps aid team members who are fighting on the front lines against the coronavirus pandemic. By giving to the Novant Health Foundation Disaster Relief Fund, you will provide support for healthcare workers, testing, patient care, medication and medical supplies.

Medical supplies

We are extremely grateful to our community for making the safety of our team members and patients a priority during this difficult time. Novant Health is pleased to report that local manufacturing companies have stepped up to rapidly produce masks and face shields for us on a large scale. At this time, we are no longer in need of any additional donations.

We are also pleased to announce that Charlotte Regional Business Alliance has joined the cause and will facilitate support from manufacturers and the business community to help build up our supply of personal protective equipment. The Alliance, in partnership with Skookum, has developed a PPE match site that will be accessible to companies in the Carolinas. It will match the health care industry with manufacturers and manufacturers with suppliers. You can access this site at: Carolinas Alliance Match Site.

Food and other supplies

Our team members are going above and beyond to care for our communities during this time. If you want to donate nonmedical supplies to our organization, including nonrefrigerated food or snack items, contact us using the form below. If you would like to make a large-scale donation or receive a receipt, please tell us in your message.

At the moment, we are able to accept food donations that meet the following criteria:

  • Meals must be commercially prepared, or made in a kitchen that has been inspected by your county health department.
  • Items must be individually packaged and wrapped. (Boxed lunches and fruit that can be peeled are acceptable. No buffet-style meals, please.)
  • Items must have food-sensitive labels. (E.g., “vegetarian,” “vegan,” “contains dairy/soy/nuts/gluten.”)
  • Beverages and supplements such as creamers and sugars must be for individual use.
  • When possible, we appreciate donations of healthy, well-balanced food that can properly fuel our team members.

Please note: All donations must be dropped off at the location you are assigned when your delivery is coordinated. When you bring your donation, if applicable, please notify us of when the food was removed from refrigeration.

Blood donations

The American Red Cross is urging healthy people to consider scheduling an appointment to donate blood. Giving blood is considered an essential community service. This means people in areas with stay-at-home orders can still donate. Blood donations are used in the treatment of many patients across the state, including at Novant Health.

If you have more questions, please visit the American Red Cross website.
