Thanks Pizza Pack Volunteers!

Last night we had an open volunteer time to sort supplies at Mano a Mano; thanks to everyone that helped out! (For a schedule of upcoming events & activities like this one, check out our events calendar here.)

From our Volunteer Warehouse Manager Ray:

“A shout out this evening to all the volunteers, many shown here, who helped out at tonight’s Pizza Pack at Mano a Mano. We processed well over 250 pairs of crutches and dozens and dozens of walkers. The warehouse is filling up fast thanks to folks giving up a couple of hours of their time to help others they will never know thousands of miles away.”

From Minnesota to Bolivia: Distributing Donated Medical Supplies

Mano a Mano collects donated supplies in Minnesota and ships them to Bolivia, where they are distributed to people and organizations in need throughout the country.

Check out footage and interviews from our most recent large-scale distribution of supplies in October 2016 at the Mano a Mano warehouse in Cochabamba, Bolivia, when more than 90,000 pounds of supplies were given away:

The surplus program is the program that started Mano a Mano more than 22 years ago; with the dedicated support of hundreds of volunteers in both the US & Bolivia, we have collected and shipped millions of pounds of supplies since 1994.

All of the supplies that volunteers sorted and prepped yesterday will be included in our next shipment to Bolivia, which we are starting to plan for August. There are currently 4 containers en route to Bolivia from a shipment in February of this year.
