Group Volunteering

Group volunteering is a great way to help us save lives and protect the environment alongside your friends, family, and co-workers. Group volunteering sessions begin with a presentation and tour of the facility where we explain your important role in the recovery and redistribution of medical supplies. This presentation can be specifically tailored to your group’s interest.

To maximize your experience, MedWish suggests that groups not exceed 30 individuals. Groups should schedule their volunteer opportunity at least seven days before the service. Contact us to schedule your group sort.

Group volunteer opportunities are available Tuesday-Friday and two Saturdays each month.

Go to our Volunteer Calendar and click on “I am scheduling my group” to sign up.  For questions, contact our Volunteer Program Manager at (216) 692-1685 or volunteer@medwish.org.

We can work with you to see how your schedule can help meet our mission. Give your time today!
