โ€œThe thing I want you to remember is that you have the power to change the story, the narrative about people with diabetes. You can change hearts and minds, and in fact, actually, itโ€™s the only path forward. Itโ€™s the key to ending discrimination, to making real and lasting change. Itโ€™s the key to advocacy.โ€ โ€“ Joan Garry

โœ… When the August 10 derecho storm impacted our area, our thoughts immediately went to those that needed diabetes supplies.
โœ… We reached out to Mercy Medical Center Foundation in Cedar Rapids. The hospital staff served many who lost supplies & needed a place to store insulin properly.
๐Ÿ’™ The conversation led to supporting the Health Care Heroes. There were many staff members impacted by the storm & they still came to work to serve others. ๐Ÿ’™

Itโ€™s #MDPMissionMonday & we're excited to share about our Diabetes Supply Locker Program:

โœ… We rescue unused, in-date & unneeded diabetes supplies & find them โ€œnewโ€ homes. ๐Ÿ™‚
โœ… In most circumstances the donor has usually lost a loved one that lived with diabetes.
๐Ÿ’™ We so enjoy hearing about the loved one & most importantly being able to carry on their legacy in sharing their unused diabetes supplies to help others.
๐Ÿ’™ We help many individuals within our area & we also support another non-profit organization Insulin for Life USA that serves a much larger global demographic & sends supplies to developing countries in need.

Photo: These 2 boxes contain 1,012 diabetes supply items on their way to finding a โ€œnewโ€ home & making a difference in the lives of youth & adults with diabetes who would otherwise go without.
MDP rescued diabetes supplies:
2017 = 208 items
2018 = 5,364 items
2019 = 1,439 items
2020 to date = 2,032 items
