Diabetic Supplies Surplus

(Tracie) #1

We are lucky, we have good insurance. That being said, we also have a surplus of extra supplies. We tried to donate them to our Endocrinologists Office, but they won’t take them. Does anyone know where I can donate them? I know that there are others that could use supplies, I hate to just throw them all out! Any recommendations are appreciated!!!

try doctors without borders, goodwill, or maybe a hospital; some of them operate charity/clinic offices.

As a diabetic educator…many hospitals with CDE’s can give you great places to donate. I know that Nebraska has an organization that will take surplus supplies for a tax deduction to you.

I had a surplus of supplies such as syringes and the local health department couldn’t take them for re-circulation, but had suggested animal clinics. Pets with diabetes get expensive to take care of too!!

Check with your endocrinologist and hospital diabetic learning center. Many learning centers accept supply and pump donations for others.

Hi Tracie,

Here’s a link provided by the American Diabetes Association on how you can go about donating extra supplies: http://www.diabetesforecast.org/2013/aug/how-to-donate-surplus-diabetes-supplies.html
