How to Help - Donations

  • Cash donations to the non-profit of your choice IS THE BEST donation.  
  • You can find vetted non-profit organizations supporting COVID-19 response efforts at www.NVOAD.org.
  • Don’t collect or make donations until you are sure it is needed, who will accept it and how it will get there is worked out.
  • If you have medical supplies or equipment to donate, please provide us details on what you are offering.

How to Help - Volunteering

  • Licensed Healthcare professionals that want to volunteer can get information on eligibility, view credential levels by clinical competency and register with the Emergency System for Advance Registration of Volunteer Health Professionals in their state. 
  • Trained medical volunteers can offer their services by registering with a National VOAD member on www.NVOAD.org.   Please not begin operations without contacting NVOAD first. You will be contacted once resources are matched with unmet needs.
  • Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) volunteers can help in different ways in their communities (call centers, drive through clinics, and more).  Contact an MRC unit in your area to find out how you can help.  For more information visit mrc.hhs.gov/HomePage.

  • Adequate supplies of blood are needed to treat patients in hospitals, but many blood drives have been cancelled.  Donating blood is a safe process, and blood donation centers have the highest standards of safety and infection control.  To find where you can donate blood, visit redcross.org.
