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 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.

    Hi! I am new to this group and I tried to register for this event, but it said the event was full. I did create an account and sign the waiver. Do I need to wait to volunteer for a project? I had time tomorrow so I thought I'd give it a shot!

      There are ongoing issues with the Project Cure website. You do not have to sign up for an event with Project Cure, just create a profile. Or a profile can be created Saturday morning when you arrive. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
