October was another great month at Global Links. As always, my main focus was on sorting still usable medical supplies so they can be boxed up and shipped out to resource poor areas of Latin America and the Caribbean. I started supervising volunteers on a brand new Monday evening shift and I started supervision a wheelchair repair shift with University of Pittsburgh engineering students. Also, I was able to represent Global Links at two outreach events; a volunteer/internship fair at Point Park University and at the Wilkins School Community Centers EcoFest. The highlight of the month had to be Global Links hosting Green Drinks. I got the opportunity to talk to a lot of interesting eco-minded people about what Global Links does while enjoying some delicious food and drink.
