Welcome to Project C.U.R.E. — Chicago!
Project C.U.R.E. was founded in a Colorado garage in 1987 and has since expanded to seven distribution locations across the U.S, including The Windy City. We’ve also grown to become the world’s largest distributor of donated medical supplies, equipment, and services to doctors and nurses in more than 135 countries. This is no easy feat. The only way we can make it happen is through the help and support of those also willing to get involved — from volunteering to donating, you can help us make a difference. There are three ways you can help:
Volunteer With Us
Project C.U.R.E. Chicago needs passionate, mission-driven volunteers who are ready to roll up their sleeves and lend a helping hand to help sort, package and/or label medical supplies, stock donated medical supplies, prepare for shipments, and load containers. We welcome both individual and group volunteers.
Signing up to volunteer is easy. Just visit the Chicago Volunteer Hub, select a date to see if openings are available, then select “sign up.” If you’ve never volunteered with us before, no worries, we’ve got an informative video and you’ll tour the warehouse. We won’t leave you hanging, we promise. Project C.U.R.E. requires that our volunteers who are 14-17 years old be accompanied by an adult. For younger volunteers, please email us for information on offsite options for Kits for Kids. If you have specific areas of interest, we need volunteers for the following:
Sort Team Leaders:
Sort Team Assistance:
Surgical Instruments Team:

Donate Surplus Medical Supplies
To help provide the necessary medical equipment and supplies that doctors and nurses around the world need to save lives, we need surplus medical supplies donated from hospitals, manufacturers, medical facilities, and individuals. Learn more about how to donate supplies.
Make a Financial Contribution
While we need our volunteers and medical donations, financial donations make a significant impact in helping us get the medical supplies from our warehouse into the hands of the healthcare workers who need it most abroad.
Together, we can continue our mission to deliver health and hope to the world.Donate to Project C.U.R.E Chicago
