HERO collects donations of healthcare supplies and medical equipment from local hospitals, agencies, and individuals.
Warehouse staff and volunteers sort, clean, and inspect incoming donations ensuring all supplies are usable and safe for redistribution. After this process, each item is entered into an inventory database. We keep track of all pounds collected, redistributed, and people served.
HERO has a retail store where anyone can receive supplies for low to no cost. There are handling fees, however they may be waived if there is a financial and medical need. At this time, HERO does not have a pick up or delivery service. At times, we are able to send supplies through the mail, but are unable to cover the cost of shipping.
We also partner with organizations and medical mission teams that travel all over the world. Mission handling fees are $3 per pound. These may be waived as well. HERO cannot cover the cost of shipping and handling.
HERO is looking forward to sharing our mission to other communities around the U.S. and the world. Through our years of experience, we have a system that not only saves the environment; it helps our neighbors live a healthier, safer, and more hopeful life. We believe HERO can be in every community. If you would like to start a HERO in your community, click HERE.
