Donate your gently used scrubs or have a scrub drive.
Often on our Medical Trips, many nurses and nursing students of the facility we visit turn to our teams for their scrubs, as they cannot afford to purchase an abundance of scrubs for their personal use. Upon completion of a Medical Trip, our generous volunteers usually donate their scrubs to the nurses and nursing students at the hospital.
Donate your gently used large suitcases/duffle bags with wheels.
Our teams are always seeking large suitcase/duffle bags to transport supplies on our Medical Trips.
Take up a collection of small stuffed animals, coloring books and crayons.
Many teams travel with small stuffed animals, such as Beanie Babies, small blankets, and coloring books and crayons to distribute to the children we screen and treat while on a Medical Trip.
Take up a collection of toothbrushes and toothpaste.
Out dental teams usually take toothbrushes and toothpaste on their dental trips to teach and encourage the importance of good oral hygiene to children.
Donate non-expired bottles of Tylenol
