Saturday April 18, 2020
We had another wonderful turnout at our Meadowmont Wellness Center this past week. We received nearly 10,000 masks, our most urgent need, and nearly 30,000 other medical supplies. The medical supplies are currently being used to help protect UNC Health and WakeMed workers and patients during this critical time. We have received well over 1,000,000 pieces donated at our drop-off locations since the drive started on March 23rd!
