ASU Collegiate DECA Helps Deliver Health & Hope to the World
The Arizona State University Collegiate DECA chapter members hosted the Project C.U.R.E volunteer site on Saturday, October 29, 2016, in collaboration with ASU’s Day of Service organized by Changemaker Central, ASU’s community service headquarters.
Project C.U.R.E is a well-known non-profit, humanitarian relief organization. It is one of the largest non-profit organizations in the world, that delivers medical supplies and equipment to developing countries. Their main purpose is to collect and sort donated medical supplies and equipment from manufactures, hospitals and surpluses and then distribute the supplies to developing countries based on needs assessment of the local hospitals and clinics in those counties.
Volunteers spent their Saturday sorting, organizing, and packaging medical supplies and equipment. By the end of the day, the volunteers had successfully sorted, counted, and packaged two-thirds of the entire Project C.U.R.E warehouse stock.
“It is good to know that we have an organization like Project C.U.R.E that allows developing countries to receive the kind of medical assistance their citizen’s need”, said Hannah Dabbs, Arizona State University Collegiate DECA V.P. of Membership. “I would consider volunteering again.”
“Our time spent at the Project CU.R.E was inspiring ”, said Jazmine Reyes, Arizona State University Collegiate DECA V.P. of Communication. “I would give up another Saturday now that I know what my time really means for this organization.”
