Project C.U.R.E. Help Save Lives Around The World!

Join a great team of Phoenix Philanthropists for a very rewarding morning making a life-saving difference in our world, sorting and packing donated medical supplies for facilities in over 130 countries. The supplies go to communities in dire need to help empower medical professionals to improve health and save lives. With your help, Project C.U.R.E. is able to ship two to three semi truck trailer-sized containers of critically-needed supplies and equipment to medical facilities in desperate need each week.  Absolutely no medical experience is necessary, but we can't say you won't feel like a medical pro when you leave.
