CBH Returning to Volunteer at MedShare on MLK Sunday---Sign up Early!

On January 14, the Tikkun Olam Committee will sponsor CBH’s annual MLK weekend community service project. We will be returning to MedShare (www.medshare.org) for the 9th year in a row.

MedShare’s mission is to collect, from hospitals and other facilities, unused medical supplies that would otherwise be headed for landfills and distribute them to facilities in developing countries where they are sorely needed. Our CBH group will be sorting and packing supplies at MedShare’s Decatur warehouse facility (indoors and climate-controlled) on SUNDAY, JANUARY 14 FROM 9 AM TO NOON. This is a fun and rewarding activity, and a good way to honor Dr. King’s legacy by volunteering as an individual or with your family, and representing CBH. For teens, it’s a great way to earn school-required community service hours while learning more about—and helping to address—the inaccessibility of basic medical supplies that we take for granted.

Note that for safety reasons, MedShare requires that volunteers be at least 10 years old, and volunteers age 14 or under must be accompanied by an adult. Our volunteer slots always fill up, so secure yours early! To sign up, e-mail Jane Diamond at jsdiamond11@gmail.com. Please include the names of all family members who will be volunteering—and the ages of any children.
