Sort Life-Saving Medical Supplies at Project C.U.R.E.
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 not only 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, but is able to immediately step up production to address the largest Ebola outbreak in history, working around the clock to expedite life-critical supplies to Ebola-ravaged countries and help put an end to the spread of this deadly disease. Already, over 15 containers of protective gear and supplies to address this Ebola crisis have been delivered to West Africa, with 5 containers sent from Tempe's facility. This event is an exciting and rewarding way to make a life-saving difference. Absolutely no medical experience is necessary, but we can't say you won't feel like a medical pro when you leave.

What we're about

Educating, Inspiring & Engaging Youth & Adults in Improving

Community Through Philanthropy

Phoenix Philanthropists is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization and we use the Meetup.com to schedule volunteer opportunities in the greater Phoenix Metro Area.

As a nonprofit, we currently facilitate three programs.

1. Philanthropic Service Program

This program connects individuals and groups in sharing of their time and talent with nonprofit organizations on a regular and special event basis. Special volunteer projects are also facilitated by the Phoenix Philanthropists throughout the greater Phoenix Metro Area.

2. Philanthropy Education Program (PEP)

A comprehensive educational program that teaches youth and adults about the meaning and importance of philanthropy in our community.

3. Philanthropic Scholarship Program

A scholarship program for those who exhibit outstanding philanthropic contributions in our community through volunteerism. Scholarships will be awarded on an annual basis.

We do not charge a membership fee to volunteer as we feel everyone should be able to contribute to helping others regardless of their financial situation. If you would like to support our efforts, please visit our SUPPORT US (http://phoenixphilanthropists.org/donate.html) page on our website and make a donation for any amount.

So now what? Volunteer in Phoenix! This group is open to anyone who has a desire to make a difference in other people's lives. Single? Married? Kids? It does not matter. What does matter is that you are reliable and professional when participating in group functions. We welcome families, youth groups, corporate groups and individuals. We are very passionate about getting the youth in our community more involved with volunteer opportunities.

When RSVPing, please keep in mind you are committing time to helping nonprofit organizations and people who need your help and are counting on it. The dynamics are different than the social Meetup groups, where it isn't as big of a deal if you don't show up. Please be responsible and cancel your RSVP at least 48 hours in advance if you can't make it. If you sign up for a wait list, consider it as your being on call for work. If you cannot fill in at the list minute and your plans change, please take yourself off the wait list. I do understand that things come up sometime. Just be mindful of what this group is about and those that we commit our time to.

Please review our mission and programs by visiting our Phoenix Philanthropists Website (http://thephoenixphilanthropists.org/). Once you join our Meetup group, please follow the instructions in your welcome email as to filling out contact information with our nonprofit and filling out our volunteer release form.

For any questions, please call (602) 824-8751 or email phxphilanthropists@gmail.com

Thanks for your interest!
