The Southwest Chapter volunteered at Project Cure in Denver, CO on Thursday, June 6th. Project Cure is the largest provider of medical supplies and equipment to developing countries around the world. There was a group of 17 PLUS members volunteering in the warehouse where the group sorted various medical supplies, packed up boxes that were then labeled and loaded into cargo crates for shipping across the world. The Chapter gifted a PLUS Foundation grant of $1,000 to the charity to continue their important work.
Thank you to the Chapter, the PLUS Foundation, and all the volunteers who made this Charity event a success!
