Description: 
Partners for World Health (PWH) is a non-profit organization that collects unused medical supplies and sends them to hospitals and clinics in the developing world. We collect thousands of pounds of medical supplies every day. 
 
We are looking for volunteers to help sort and prepare medical supplies for shipments overseas. All of it needs to be evaluated, sorted, and repacked before it can be loaded in containers and sent to under served populations in the developing world. The tasks vary - you may be opening boxes of items to sort, putting together kits of similar items (personal care kits, surgical kits, respiratory kits, etc) or filling boxes with medical supplies, for example. No medical knowledge is needed!
 
Please wear closed toe shoes and comfortable clothing
 
There is plenty of parking.  If you plan to stay the entire day, please make sure you bring lunch.  A snack will be provided by Partners for World Health.
