Medical Supply Sorters

  • Global Health Ministries

GHM needs help loading a cargo container which is set to ship to Nigeria next week.  Please consider helping out if you're free in the morning.  We help get pallets ready, now it's time to help load a container.

 

This is a warehouse position so please wear sturdy close toe shoes. Also it might get a little dusty in some parts of the warehouse. Volunteer in Minnesota and touch people across the globe! Volunteers will prepare and load boxes of medical supplies to be shipped to third world countries. Even though this is a Luthern based organization, they want volunteers from all backgrounds to help in the warehouse. Since this is a warehouse, please wear appropriate clothing which means no sandals or open toed shoes. What is Global Health Ministries? We are an instrument through which your love and compassion are channeled for the health and hope of God's children around the world!
