Update from the Executive Director

I hope everyone has stayed safe during Sandy! Here is an update on what I’ve been working on recently.

Right now, we are preparing for our next set of shipments coming up this year. We are very excited to send 5 shipments between now and the summer of 2013! These shipments will be going to the Upper West, Upper East, and Northern Regions.

One of our volunteers has recently visited several hospitals that received supplies from our most recent Upper East shipment. We are also getting updates on the nutrition center and anxiously awaiting its opening. I’ve been getting our Fall newsletter ready which will have more information so be on the lookout for it in your inboxes this week!

Our interns are hard at work researching medical supplies and planning fundraisers. I would also like to thank everyone who has been using iGive. During this past month we have raised enough to purchase a box of exam gloves for one of our shipments! So thank you!
