Bridging the gap between surplus and need.

MedShare Western Region

MedShare’s Western Region opened in 2008 and since then we have shipped forty-foot containers of life-changing medical aid to hospitals in the developing world and equipped hundreds of medical teams as well as safety-net clinics throughout California. We have established partnerships with the leading hospitals in Northern California and prevented hundreds of tons of medical supplies from going to area landfills.

Here, you will find information on our facility location, how to support our mission (you can volunteer or donate), news on recent and upcoming projects and events, hospital partners, and our staff. Thank you for your support of MedShare's mission.   


Join us to network with other San Francisco Bay area young professionals  who like to make a positive difference while winning some handmade chocolate or artwork in the free raffle!  Our Happy Hour includes drink and appetizer specials. A percentage of the proceeds from the specials will be donated to MedShare.  Click here for ticket information!



MedShare's operations depend on its volunteers to get these life-saving supplies to people around the world who desperately need them. Learn more about volunteer opportunities or sign up here.

Western Regional Council

Regional Councils generate awareness of MedShare in our areas of operations and raise funds to support and sustain the organization’s healthcare, humanitarian aid, and environmental mission. They link MedShare’s work to the communities we serve and are a supportive resource to the board and management.
