Donate to the ARxC Supply Patrol!

ARxC Supply Patrol is collecting medical supplies for our hospital workers! Today we delivered our first load to St Joseph's Hospital and Emory University Hospital/ Grady Hospital downtown. We drove 256 miles to get these supplies and will continue to travel our state to get more! We will also be sending them food to nourish them as they work so hard to save our lives. We are asking for donations to continue this work. We thank you in advance for your generosity! Questions contact dlg@arxc.org
