The Rotary Club of Milwaukee is a lead participant in the Ukrainian Medical Association of North America’s (UMANA) effort to deliver urgently needed medical supplies to Ukraine for use during war in field, military, and community hospitals. Supplies have donated by medical manufacturers, hospitals and physicians.
Saturday, June 25 – Sort and Pack Medical Supplies
On Saturday, June 25, adults or children age 16+ are needed to help assemble, sort, and package medical supplies at a warehouse in Germantown. These supplies will be sorted, packaged and labeled for quick deployment, transported by truck to O’Hare airport, flown by MAERSK to Poland, unloaded and transported to UKR locations under supervision of UKR Ministry of Health.
Medical Professionals: There is a special need for medical professionals—e.g. doctors, nurses, PAs, technicians—to guide the sorting process. Trauma and operating room experience is a real plus.
Non-Medical Professionals: Volunteers are also needed to assemble supplies in boxes, keep track of inventory in each box, securely tape and package and complete pallets
W204 N13125 Goldendale Road, Germantown, WI 53076. Maps might say Richfield. Use “Kapco Metal Stamping – Germantown” in Google Maps to be directed to the correct location.
