Cone Health Seeks Donations of Medical Supplies to Support COVID-19 Response  


Cone Health welcomes donations of medical supplies from corporations, community organizations and individuals to help the health system treat patients and prevent spread of the COVID-19 virus.  

“As part of our efforts to do everything possible to meet current and future care needs of our community and to prevent COVID-19 from spreading, we are reaching out to organizations and individuals who may have essential medical and cleaning supplies,” said Michelle Schneider, vice president and chief philanthropy officer. “The safety of our patients, team members and community is our top priority and we appreciate your help during this unprecedented time.”   

Cone Health has been conserving supplies of protective equipment to be prepared for the potential need of caring for higher numbers of COVID-19 patients. Specific items needed to strengthen our preparedness include protective equipment, such as masks, eye protection and gloves. A complete list of items requested is included below. Donations will be used across Cone Health’s multi-county service area.  

Those with supplies to donate should visit to share details of the donation. Donations of needed items in larger quantities will be prioritized. Cone Health will coordinate pick-up of supplies. Please do not bring items to the hospitals.   

As we continue to monitor the spread of COVID-19 in our community, the list of needed items may change. As always monetary donations are very helpful in filling gaps and allow us to respond quickly to opportunities that arise.
