Community Surplus

Today, more care is taking place outside of traditional healthcare facilities. Many patients and families are dealing with surplus and no longer needed supplies that can't be returned to the manufacturer.

Global Links' Community Collection Network provides convenient drop-off spots where the public can take surplus medical supplies and home care materials.
