Welcome to Project C.U.R.E. — Chicago!
Project C.U.R.E. was founded in a Colorado garage in 1987 and has since expanded to seven distribution locations across the U.S., including The Windy City. We’ve also grown to become the world’s largest distributor of donated medical supplies, equipment, and services to doctors and nurses in more than 135 countries. This is no easy feat. The only way we can make it happen is through the help and support of those also willing to get involved — from volunteering to donating, you can help us make a difference.
