Intervol. 7-5-2020

Nicole Jones, the Executive Director of Intervol joins Marti Casper to talk about the organization that started here in Rochester many years ago. Intervol is dedicated to connecting the world’s neediest to materials, people, and opportunities. By recovering and redistributing medical supplies and equipment, and through the provision of volunteer opportunities for medical professionals and aspiring educators, InterVol is able to further its mission to engage humanitarian efforts worldwide. Intervol helps reduce our carbon footprint by keeping usable medical supplies and equipment out of the landfill. And makes a lasting impact by building long-term partnerships with healthcare providers worldwide.The pandemic has affected operations and fund raising. For the time being curbside donations can be made every Monday and Thursday from 8:30 A.M. to 4 P.M. at the North Entrance of the Riedman Campus. They have temporarily suspended volunteer opportunities. The website is interval.org.
