SMA is open Tuesday through Friday from 11:00am--3:00pm (closed one hour for group lunch) and has a variety of opportunities for volunteers including:
SMA has been operating since 2005. We are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization staffed and operated solely by volunteers. Our success can be attributed to the outstanding efforts, quality and dedication of our volunteers. Volunteers function in a variety of capacities including Executive Directors, shipping/ receiving, sorting, accounting, technical support and administrative positions. Considering the value and the number of shipments made each year it is amazing what a small group of dedicated volunteers can accomplish!
Reclaimed medical supplies sorted and distributed by SMA are always appreciated locally and internationally. In fiscal year 2016-17, SMA shipped over 51,000 pounds of supplies to destinations in Arizona and throughout the world. Of those shipments, 44 % were within Arizona; 7% went to Mexico, 35% went to the 3000 Club, and 1% went to other global locations. Of the items received 2% was donated for Veterinary use and an additional 11% had to be recycled as not suitable for human use. Through the abundant generosity of many people and institutions we have been able to improve the lives and meet the health needs of countless people.
