MTI Receives Award from OSU Nurses

by Katie Carroll | May 20, 2014

Every year during National Nurses Week, Oregon Health & Sciences University (OHSU) honors their outstanding nurses with an awards reception.  Nurses are honored in various categories such as community service, teaching, mentoring, palliative care, and more. This year's event was held on May 7th, and eleven OHSU nurses were recognized with awards.

As part of this annual day of recognition, OHSU nurses also nominate local charities to honor with donations.  This year, MTI was one of the three charities awarded!  OHSU nurses voted, and selected MTI as one of three winning charities. Virginia Garcia Clinic received $5,000; MTI, $2500, and Meals on Wheels, $2500.

Elaine Boomer, RN volunteers in our Tigard distribution center and is the OHSU nurse who nominated MTI for the award we received.

We congratulate Virginia Garcia and Meals on Wheels, who are partners of ours!  MTI provides Virginia Garcia with hygiene, medical supplies and over-the-medicines for their clients.  MTI provides Meals on Wheels with donated liquid food that we are unable to send overseas, keeping it out of the landfill.

Thank you to all of our supporters and to all of the nurses who generously donate their time to help provide care for those in most need around the world.
