Miracle to share:
On October 26, 2016, a delegation of Project C.U.R.E. staff and board members traveled to Pennsylvania for the inauguration and ribbon cutting ceremonies of Project C.U.R.E.’s new Mid-Atlantic Distribution Center, located in West Grove, Pennsylvania. The warehouse and office complex consists of about 60,000 square feet of space and will serve the critical needs of Project C.U.R.E.’s expansion into the east coast resource market.
The facility, which has access to strategic international shipping ports, will begin serving manufacturers and wholesale venders of medical goods, and will immediately begin working with over 60 regional hospitals in the Philadelphia area.
Project C.U.R.E. has become the world’s largest handler of donated medical goods into over 130 developing countries. It now has large distribution facilities in the metropolitan areas of Denver, Colorado, Phoenix, Arizona, Nashville, Tennessee, Houston, Texas, Chicago, Illinois, and now Philadelphia. It additionally has collection warehouses in nine other cities across the U.S.
A generous grant from AmerisourceBergan, one of the largest global pharmaceutical and biotech manufacturers headquartered in the Philly area, allowed Project C.U.R.E. to acquire needed transportation and collection equipment for the new Philadelphia operation. Other medical and charitable organizations are stepping up to help Project C.U.R.E.’s new Mid-Atlantic endeavor.
When we started Project C.U.R.E. in 1987, I never knew that it would grow anywhere outside the borders of the country of Brazil. But God had other ideas. We start our 30th year of collecting and distributing medical supplies and pieces of medical equipment in January, 2017. It has been an awesome adventure and fortunately, each one involved is convinced that it has been the divine wisdom and engineering of God that has brought it all to pass. None of us is smart enough, strong enough, or gifted enough to take credit for that which has been accomplished.
With a dedicated force of over 25,000 volunteers in just the U.S. Project C.U.R.E. stands on tip- toe with eager anticipation as we look to a future of delivering health and hope to the desperately needy people around the world. Forbes magazine ranks Project C.U.R.E. as one of the 20 Most Efficient Large U.S. Charities and we are the recipient of the GuideStar Exchange Platinum Seal and the Charity Navigator Four-Star Rating.
Now is the season to be grateful. Now is the time to thank God for his miracles. Now is the occasion to reaffirm our vision and rededicate our efforts to help other people become Better Off. We are all a part of the great new miracle of Project C.U.R.E.’s Mid-Atlantic Distribution Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I am so grateful.
