Making a world of difference since 1993!

This year is MedWish International's 30th anniversary.

Whether you're new to MedWish or have been part of our efforts since the beginning, we hope you will join us as we mark this exciting milestone. We have a lot planned for 2023 and will be keeping this page updated all year long showcasing our operations, stories from our MedWish family, and ways that YOU can MAKE YOUR MARK!

We love our volunteers

MedWish relies on the helping hands of volunteers from start to finish.

This month we followed our process from the very beginning to demonstrate the importance of the volunteers at our hospital locations, like Akron Children's Hospital (ACH), to the volunteers in our warehouse.

"It's nice to know that these items are getting a new life somewhere at a facility with limited resources and patients in need,” said Ashley Bowman, a registered nurse who works with hematology and oncology patients at ACH.


There are many ways to support our 30th anniversary. See below for three ideas and check back throughout the year for more!

Give your time and volunteer at MedWish! Help us continue making a world of difference and register today!

Join us on Saturday, August 19th at Sterling Recreation Center for our annual 5k Run/2k Walk.
