Please join the group of volunteers from CCOP going to sort medical supplies at MedShare in San Leandro on Saturday mornings throughout the year.
MedShare is an organization that reclaims new, unused medical supplies (of all types) that local hospitals would ordinarily discard into local landfills. Through agreements with the hospitals, MedShare collects these supplies and brings them to their warehouse in San Leandro where volunteers sort and package the supplies for shipment to free clinics in the US and hospitals and clinics in third world countries or in areas suffering from natural disasters.
Groups of 20-25 volunteers from CCOP have been helping MedShare for several years, and we would like to invite you to join us. If you would like to participate, or if you would like more information, please contact me by email or by phone.
PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THE FOLLOWING:
- MedShare asks that you not bring children under 10 years of age.
- All children between the ages of 10 and 13 must be accompanied by and directly supervised by a parent.
- All children under the age of 18 must have a signed parent permission form, which I can provide.
- All volunteers (of all ages) must be wearing shoes that enclose your feet (no sandals, no open toed shoes)
People who have volunteered in the past have found it very worthwhile and rewarding. I hope you can join us.
Thank you very much. We appreciate your participation.
With best regards,
