Pick-up Donations of Medical Supplies- Heavy Lifting

Save to Favorites

Partners for World Health

  • 6 people are interested
PWH Truck

PWH is in need of volunteers to help with our pick-ups in our box truck and van! This volunteer opportunity does involve heavy lifting, loading and unloading the truck (not just driving). Volunteers are paired together or with a staff member for pick-ups, and these are typically from healthcare facilities.

Not interested in driving? We are also looking for volunteers to be the "co-pilot" to help with the loading and unloading! You do not need a special drivers license for our vehicles but do need a clean driving record to be added to our insurance. This opportunity does need to be scheduled in advance- if you have regular availability that is always helpful! Pick-ups typically require a half day or full day depending on where they are located and take place Monday through Friday.

Please fill out the volunteer application at www.partnersforworldhealth.org and contact Zoƫ at zoe@partnersforworldhealth.org for more information.

Mission Statement

To collect unused medical supplies from local medical facilities and distribute them to countries in need, effectively keeping waste out of Maine's landfills; to send local medical personnel on medical missions to developing countries; to educate our local community about global health issues

Description

Partners for World Health is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that collects usable medical supplies from healthcare facilities in Maine, NH & MA which are being discarded due to government regulations and ships them to countries in need. In addition, we organize medical missions to Southeast Asia and Africa for doctors, nurses, and students. We strive to send a tema of medical personnel to every country where we ship a container of medical supplies. Lastly, we are committed to educating our community members about the importance of recycling and the disparities in healthcare around the world. We offer a free lecture series on the first Tuesday of the month from Sept - June in which a medical provider shares information and photographs from a medical service trip abroad
