A message from Senator Thom Tillis


Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, I’ve been holding regular telephone town halls with hundreds of thousands of North Carolinians to hear their concerns and answer their questions. One question I hear over and over again is how an individual can help out their fellow North Carolinians during this crisis, which is reflective of the kindness and generosity of the residents of our great state. 

Whether you simply want to donate resources or volunteer your time, I wanted to share some opportunities for those looking to help out their fellow North Carolinians.

For donation opportunities:

  • Blood donation is down right now, yet the need is high. If you are a healthy adult, please consider giving blood. You can find more information here.
  • If your company is interested in donating medical supplies, please visit here for more information. 
  • Thousands of families are struggling to find their next meal right now as more and more hardworking North Carolinians face unemployment caused by this pandemic. If you are interested in donating food to a food bank, visit here.

For volunteer opportunities:

  • For those who do not want to leave the house just yet, but still want to help out, please click here for stay-at-home volunteer opportunities.
  • Meals on Wheels is accepting volunteers, so if you are interested, visit here for opportunities in your county.
  • If you are a clinical, non-clinical, or retired medical professional and are interested in volunteering, please visit here for more information. The registration form can be found here.
  • For a list of additional volunteer centers across the state, please visit here.

While we are all doing our best to follow social distancing guidelines, there are still great ways to volunteer and help your fellow North Carolinians.  

Additionally, please check in on your loved ones, your neighbors, and the elderly who may need assistance, even if it’s just someone to talk to. Everyone is handling this pandemic differently, so helping out could be as simple as remaining in contact with those we care about. We will get through this together.

Thank you for reading, and as always please reach out to my office if you have any questions or need help with a federal agency and please stay safe. 


All the best,
