Volunteer with Us
Delivering health and hope to the world...made possible by you.
At the heart of Project C.U.R.E. are our volunteers, on whom our organization depends. Our volunteers represent numerous backgrounds, including nurses, doctors, students, young professionals and retirees, among many others. From sorting donations of medical supplies and testing biomedical equipment to administrative tasks and lending professional expertise to our various departments, volunteers provide valuable support to Project C.U.R.E. and are utilized according to their strengths and interests. Our volunteers help us meet a world of need.
Serve in one of our U.S. Locations or embark on a volunteer adventure in another country. To help at a busy Project C.U.R.E. warehouse, you MUST register for a sorting activity. No walk-ins can be accommodated.

As a retired nurse, I can think of no greater use of my professional skills than serving our global community. No matter how busy my life or work gets, I am always re-energized by the hours I spend volunteering. When I am in the Project C.U.R.E. warehouse, I remember the faces of the people in underserved countries that I have been so privileged to care for. That and the mission of Project C.U.R.E. has kept me coming back for seven years. ~ Maribeth Trujillo, MS, RN, NE-BC Director of Professional Resources
