I just learned that the Insulin For Life USA site
is receiving donations of Medtronic pump supplies and a few other things besides insulin. Here are the details from them:
Please note the specific supplies we seek - please do not send any others.
Please only send the following supplies that are no longer needed, unopened, and in-date, with at least 5 months to use-by date:
* insulin (at least 5 months to use-by date)
* glucose test strips (at least 5 months to use-by date)
* unused glucose meters that are less than 2 years old
* unopened Medtronic pump supplies (at least 5 months to use-by date)
Please send by ordinary mail. No cool pack needed for insulin - it stores well for the very short period involved in transit.
Please send your donation of items to:
Dr Alicia Jenkins
The University of Oklahoma
Harold Hamm Diabetes Center
941 Stanton L. Young Boulevard
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 73104
Thank you for your assistance - you are helping save lives.
