There are a variety of volunteer opportunities available for individuals and groups of all skill levels at our warehouse located at 4930 LaVerna Road, Springfield, Illinois 62707. Although a medical background is beneficial, the majority of our Mission Outreach volunteers have little to no medical training.
1st Sort & 2nd Sort (the majority of our volunteers start as medical supply sorters):
Supplies are first sorted by broad medical categories, and are also counted and packaged. During the second sort, categories are further narrowed down into greater detail. For example, a general category such as gloves, is divided into latex and latex-free. Both jobs require lifting boxes of up to 25 pounds.
A critically needed volunteer position, this job requires basic computer skills, attention to detail and lifting boxes up to 25 pounds.
Volunteers help prepare shipments and containers on an as needed basis.
• Assisting drivers with equipment pick-ups
• Testing and repairing medical equipment
• Assisting with fund-raising and event planning
• Some sit-down jobs are available. Please contact the Volunteer Coordinator
in advance for more information.
