Details

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.
