Mission: MedShare delivers health and hope to people in Northern CA and around the world. We collect surplus medical supplies and equipment and then ship to hospitals and clinics to help save lives - and to bring dignity and hope to the poorest of the poor. With our environmental focus we divert the donated medical supplies out of Northern CA landfills by collecting the surplus directly from local hospitals. Our Distribution and Volunteer Center is conveniently located in San Leandro and are in need of nice people to help us at 3-hour sorting sessions throughout the week. Won't you join us in this important work by volunteering? We invite individuals, groups, schools, and corporations to sorting sessions where you'll package supplies to save lives around the globe!
