Donating medical supplies?

Hello everyone,

We have medical supplies left over from my father's cancer care and were wondering if there was anywhere in the Houston area that we could donate it to.

Or if someone in the Houston area needed it....

I would strongly suggest NOT TO DONATE AND/OR SELL any of your left-ove medical supplies.

First of all it may not be legal.

if that are still packaged in the original package visit your the hospital that was caring for you father and see what they say. I would bet my life on the fact that they would take and dump in the hazard container.

Take Care.

Hi-

I donated equipment to Ronald McDonald House on Holcomb Blvd. near MD Anderson.  I had an apartment in Houston while having treatment and also had food left when I returned home.

They were so happy to have un-opened food as well as the equipment.

Thanks so much for your suggestion. 

I took 4 boxes of formula (fibersource) and they were very grateful.

Also, a volunteer told me of some nonprofits that would love donations of medicine, even if they are used. Obviously not expired. They take them to 3rd world countries to people in need. Just make sure you take the patient's name and info off.

Medical Bridges, St. Thomas Moore Catholic Church, and nurse at MDA all take these donations I'm Houston.

It just seems like such a waste to throw away so many meds and equipment when someone could use it.
