Thoughtout the year, VIDA prepares and delivers 50+ shipping containers to Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Chile, and Haiti. We will help sort supplies for these monthly shipments.

What we’ll be doing

Volunteers will be sorting donated medical supplies. The supplies are sorted into broad categories and then into boxes of specific items.

What you should know

No medical background is necessary. The sorting is not physically strenuous but we do spend the entire time on our feet. Closed-toe shoes are required and we recommend layers of comfortable clothing as our warehouse facility can be dusty and the temperature varies according to the weather outside. In addition bring your magnifiers for reading small type in poor lighting.
