Volunteers improve the quality of life of people and our planet by helping to sort, identify, and package critical medical supplies that will be shipped to communities in need around the world. Our 3-hour volunteer sessions take place at our Western Region Volunteer & Distribution Center at 2937 Alvarado St. San Leandro, CA 94577.

Volunteers must be 14 years of age to volunteer independently with MedShare and must have a signed parent permission form. If volunteers are between the ages of 10 and 13, they must volunteer with their parent/guardian and must have a signed Parent Permission Form 2019.
A brief tour and orientation is conducted for new volunteers at the beginning of the session, so punctuality is important. Once you sign up for a volunteer session, you are confirmed to attend. If you need to cancel your session after signing up, we request that you cancel as soon as possible so others may have the opportunity to join in your place!
