Rescue and Repurpose

What do you do with left over medical supplies and equipment you no longer need?  Each year, landfills are inundated with these usable items that are still good.  BUSES International collects these items from individuals in the community, local doctor and dentist offices and area hospitals.  We rescue them from the landfills, and repurpose them by outfitting our clinics or sending them to other medical nonprofits for use in providing free life services to disadvantaged people stateside and abroad.
