HERO, Healthcare Equipment Recycling Organization
April 23, 2010

Thanks to the dedicated staff, volunteers and board members of HERO thousands of pounds of supplies, no longer valuable to the medical agencies, are redistributed to those in need. These supplies offer life-changing relief to area residents burdened with the high cost of health care products as well as destitute patients in missionary facilities. HERO performs an amazing humanitarian service to many by salvaging tons of medical supplies destined previously for the landfill.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the grateful and sometimes watery-eyed faces of the area residents when they receive supplies or equipment at no cost. I've also read letters or heard first- hand what services were provided by excited missionaries using HERO supplies

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Coninue to tell everyone how recycling of medical supplies can change even SAVE peoples' lives. HERO is the epitome of the Trash to Treasure concept.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Being part of HERO is spiritually uplifting. Seeing what an impact can be made using a supply that would have otherwise been discarded changes your perspective daily.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

enthusiastic and kind. Excited to assist with the medical needs of those without access to health care or those burdened by their medical expenses.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

network with more medical supply agencies and national as well as international health care providers to expand services to even MORE people in need.

Ways to make it better...

sustainable funding was constant or easily renewed. HERO contiues to search for the right audience with a passion for our combined humanitarian and environmental service.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

renewable funding and a steady number of volunteers.

One thing I'd also say is that...

The past and current staff, board- members, and volunteers of HERO are outstanding. Funding makes life easier, but without their dedication to the cause HERO could not survive
