Food Donations for Employees
We welcome food donations from organizations with a food inspection certificate, such as restaurants, catering businesses and food trucks. To help us manage the volume of donations, we respectfully ask that food donations be made in quantities to serve 50 or more health care workers.
Cone Health will coordinate pick-up of supplies at homes and businesses. Donations of items in larger quantities will be prioritized. Please do not bring items to the hospitals. Donations will be used across Cone Health’s multi-county service area.
Other Ways to Help
- Give blood. Schedule an appointment at this link.
- Support Local Food Banks
- Assist the Elderly
Due to their risk level, older adults should avoid public settings. You can help by offering to purchase groceries and other essential items including prescriptions. You may also be able to help set up technology so elderly neighbors, family and friends can stay connected to loved ones and to essential services including telehealth. Please support the elderly while maintaining safe social distancing.
- Offer to help health care workers and first responders
Those on the front lines are providing care and assisting those in greatest need. In some instances, they may not be able to return home for extended periods. You may be able to help with meals, errands, or pet care. If you wish to help a health care worker or first responder, please reach out directly to someone in your community who fits this criteria.
Thank you for considering all the ways you can help Cone Health and our broader community. We greatly appreciate your concern and interest in providing support during this time.
