Mission to Mission to Cargo Container Packing for Chulucanas, Peru - Saturday morning in July

July 28, 2018 - July 29, 2018

Cargo Container Packing Party - Saturday Morning in July

All are welcome! We start at 9:00am and end at 1:00pm. Bring friends, lunch will be provided!

Due to the large amount of supplies needed for the Peru surgical missions each June and October, Global Health Volunteers ships the bulk of the supplies on a cargo container from Edison, New Jersey. This is also an opportunity to ship equipment donated for the hospital, outpatient clinics and schools that we are helping.

CardinalHealth, through its Foundation, have served as our generous partner for this "At Home" Mission experience.  Cardinal Health staff have donated their time, energy and work location since 2005 to enable this important link for our Peru Mission Teams.

Volunteers bring family, friends, and anyone who wants to lend a hand to inventory/pack/stage supplies and equipment on a hot Saturday morning in July. It always turns out to be a productive and fun experience.  Great work for a great cause.

Email volunteer names and phone contact information to mmcginley@trinity-health.org if you can come!
