May 2011 my focus was on setting sorting goals for the summer, supervising volunteer groups, and collecting home medical equipment at community recycling events. My goal for the summer is to eliminate our backlog of 155 pallets of donated medical supplies to zero by the end of the summer. With the help of Global Links’ wonderful work-study Medical Supply Assistant, I feel that eradicating the backlog is a lofty, yet attainable goal. I also attended three hard to recycle events this month where I collected truckloads of home medical equipment such as crutches, walkers, wheelchairs and canes from the community. The most rewarding aspect of the month was the SCA Green Cities volunteer day that I coordinated and working with my continually expanding volunteer groups.
