Please register at http://www.facebook.com/#!/events/372540492814788/. Space is limited to just 10 volunteers (with the possibility of more if there are any cancellations). The Atalnta Chapter of AmeriCorps Alums will serve with MedShare on 9/15/2012. MedShare is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving healthcare and the environment through the efficient recovery and redistribution of the surplus of medical supplies and equipment to those most in need.
Do you ever wonder how all those supplies like dressings, sutures and surgical tools get in the hands of our healthcare recipients abroad? It's thanks to dedicated volunteers that help sort and prepare the medical supplies for shipping. MedShare's operations depend on its volunteers to get these life-saving supplies to people who desperately need them.
We'll be organizing medical supplies for shipment to under resourced areas of the world.
