Our Founder's Story

In 2007, Elizabeth began gathering discarded medical supplies from a local hospital. In 2009, Elizabeth rented her first storage space, and with a group of volunteers moved an inventory of more than 11,000 pounds of collected wheelchairs, crutches, wound care materials, gauze, syringes, tape, depends, gowns, alcohol wipes, etc. out of her home.
