The largest all-telesales national distributor of dental merchandise, recently donated a large shipment of supplies to Physicians for Peace, a nonprofit organization that supports and empowers healthcare professionals working with the world’s underserved populations.
The contributed supplies were used to support various international programs sponsored by the nonprofit organization. Darby shipped numerous containers filled with dental and hygiene supplies including gloves, various infection control items, assorted dental materials and small operatory equipment to the Physicians for Peace headquarters located in Norfolk, VA.
In the past few months, Darby’s latest donation has helped various Physicians for Peace partners in the Dominican Republic, Malawi, the Philippines, the West Bank, and most recently, Hôpital Albert Schweitzer in Haiti. However, this isn’t the first shipment of supplies that Darby has donated to Physicians for Peace. Darby has been partnering with the nonprofit organization for quite some time now and has been a regular contributor, benefitting countless healthcare facilities around the world.
“We have been working with Physicians for Peace for many years now,” according to Liz Meyers, Vice President of Marketing & Purchasing for Darby Dental Supply. “This large shipment to Haiti is just the tip of the iceberg. We at Darby Dental Supply are happy to be associated with an organization such as Physicians for Peace whose members continuously support the countless dental professionals who go above and beyond in order to take care of people who may not be as fortunate.”
“We are so thankful to the staff of Darby Dental Supply who continuously supports our efforts with generous donations of oral care items,” remarked Kenneth Hudson, GIK Manager, Global Health Partners at Physicians for Peace. “When we informed Hôpital Albert Schweitzer in Haiti about the type of material we received from Darby Dental Supply they were very happy. These supplies are in great need and will be very helpful in the hospital. Without the help of donors such as Darby Dental, we would never be able to do our work. We are extremely appreciative.”
In the recent years, Darby has adopted a “think globally, act locally” philanthropic philosophy, encouraging its employees who want to help the less fortunate to make a donation to their local Red Cross chapter. Most recently, Darby employees contributed to national Red Cross efforts in order to help those affected by the recent tornado in Oklahoma.
