Community Collection with Red Cross

Date: Saturday, August 16
Time: 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Location: Parking lot, 2850 Penn Avenue (behind Guardian Storage on Liberty Ave., Strip District)

Global Links is collaborating with the American Red Cross of Western PA to collect durable medical equipment for the Red Cross disaster trailers. The event will be held in conjuction with a trailer washing and restocking event. 

“We are delighted to have this opportunity to serve our local community and support the work of the Red Cross while also keeping still useful medical equipment out of landfills and our waste stream,” says Global Links Deputy Director, Angela Garcia. 

“The American Red Cross has not stocked these items in our disaster trailers in the past, so we are grateful for the cooperation of Global Links in partnering with us to increase the region’s response capacity to serve all people during a disaster,” said Victor Roosen, Regional Disaster and Program Officer for the American Red Cross, Western Pennsylvania Region.
