As part of our 200th anniversary celebration, we’re collecting supplies for a different locally based nonprofit each month this year.
In January, we’re collecting food and household supplies for McKinley Community Outreach Center.
Next, our Year of Giving continues with MedWish International in February. MedWish saves lives and the environment by collecting discarded medical equipment and supplies that can be used again.
In 2017 alone, MedWish sent out 140 shipments of lifesaving equipment to places that needed it.
And you can help too. MedWish collects all sorts of supplies — some of which you may have around your house — things like:
- diapers and powdered infant formula
- surgical masks
Here’s a complete list of supplies, equipment and furniture that MedWish collects. We’ll be accepting donations at our Main, Lake and Headlands Branches throughout February.
However, if you have something bigger that you wish to give — like wheelchairs, IV poles or furniture — then you might want to contact MedWish directly. Its phone number is 216-692-1685. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Year of Giving continues all year. The calendar is:
January – McKinley Community Outreach CenterFebruary – Medwish InternationalMarch – Lake/Geauga Recovery CenterApril – Lake County Free ClinicMay – Hannah’s HomeJune – Lake Humane SocietyJuly – Project HopeSeptember – Lake County Council on AgingOctober – Forbes HouseNovember – Broadmoor/Deepwood
