This day of celebration offers an opportunity for organizations like MedShare to lift up the impact that volunteers make in our local and global communities. Nearly 20,000 individuals spend time at MedShare’s San Leandro and Atlanta distribution centers each year. Our dedicated volunteers invest their time to sort 15,000 of pounds of surplus medical supplies that have been diverted from local landfills every week. This perfectly usable product is used to treat recipients in need of healthcare in 95 countries throughout the world.
Today and every day, we thank our volunteers for helping us build healthy communities locally and globally.
