Dear Friends and Volunteers of MedShare,
Like all of you, we’ve watched events in Texas, Florida & Puerto Rico unfold with a heavy heart and a desire to help our fellow citizens. Flooding has displaced thousands and many communities have been entirely cut off by flood waters. Clinics in the area have been cut off from supplies and support. Many hospitals have been evacuated while others are relying on backup systems. Clinics around the state have been inundated with a higher volume of patients as people leave the Houston region for safety.
MedShare is asking for your support. We are partnering with the Texas Diaper Bank to help families care for their loved ones, and are collecting basic care items to ship to Houston area medical organizations. Below is a list of needed items that can be brought to the MedShare warehouse in Secaucus, NJ.
· Diapers sizes 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
· Adult diapers for senior citizens (sizes M/L and L/XL)
· Pull-ups sizes 2T-3T, 3T-4T, and 4T-5T
We are also collecting personal hygiene items:
· Hand Sanitizer
· Infant Formula (Powdered only)
MedShare will collect, warehouse and deliver all donated items to our partners on the ground. So that we do not create an additional burden on first responders, we will ship all of the collected supplies based on the needs of our partner organizations.
MedShare is also closely monitoring Hurricane Irma as it approaches Florida, and will be ready to collect items for the people of that state should they need our support.
Items can be delivered or shipped to MedShare (701 Penhorn Avenue, Unit #3, Secaucus, NJ 07094). Drop off hours are Monday – Friday, 9:00am – 4:00pm, and Saturdays from 9:00am – 12:00pm.
