​​​​​​​​​​​​How You Can Give Back

The costs incurred in the fight against COVID-19 are huge as hospitals across the nation work to obtain added equipment and create more bed space to prepare for a surge in patients. That preparation will help save lives.

Also, nonprofit agencies associated with health care organizations are seeing a huge decline in donations, many of which go to help citizens facing life and death struggles. But there are ways you can help. ​

COVID-19 Essential Needs Fund  

Floyd Healthcare Foundation has established the COVID-19 Essential Needs Fund as a way to help purchase:

  • Personal protective equipment
  • Laboratory devices
  • Items needed for screening and monitoring patients
  • Technology to help patients and families stay connected during visitor restrictions

​Gifts of any amount will help Floyd defray some of the unexpected costs associated with this pandemic.


Supplies for Cancer​ Pati​ents

Cancer Navigators and other nonprofits have been affected by the pandemic. With many companies temporarily shutting down or laying off workers, donations have been affected. Cancer Navigators helps provide nutritional supplies, gas cards and counseling to patients battling cancer.  

Food and Snacks

Food and snacks donations are greatly appreciated by health care workers putting in long hours. We are asking that donations include individual prepackaged snacks or meals from a restaurant, deli or any other certified food preparation organization. We cannot accept homemade items.

To donate contact one of the food service coordinators:

  • Floyd Medical Center – Cindy Vice, 706.509.5752 
  • Polk Medical Center – Jeanna Smith, 706.749.4203 
  • Cherokee Medical Center – Christa McDaniel, 256.927.1301

Give Blood

Because of shelter at home orders, blood supplies across the nation are running low. Blood drives have been postponed or canceled. The good news is giving blood is considered an essential practice. ​Visit Blood Assurance online to learn more or schedule a donation. ​​
