Insulin, Other

Question from Farmingdale, New York, USA:

Where can I donate unused supplies like insulin, etc?


From: DTeam Staff

First, we suggest you check with your diabetes care team to see if there are families in your area who are in need. Secondly, see if there is a local charitable pharmacy, such as St. Vincent de Paul, that should gladly accept donations of insulin and diabetes care supplies. They will see that local families in need are taken care of.

If neither of those options work, consider shipping the insulin to Insulin for Life USA, which will accept donations of unused, in-date insulin.
