I have a SAMSUNG Galaxy Tab A8 tablet. I want to plug my UGREEN M2 External Enclosure into the tablet. It has a USB-C to USB-C cable so that I can connect it directly to the tablet. I understand that the tablet is not providing enough power to run the drive. Can someone suggest a powered adapter that I can use to connect these devices?

Get a USB-C hub that has at least two USB-C ports. Double check that one port is capable of charging the device while using the other for the drive. This will ensure that your device and external storage are powered through the hub while still communicating.
