At DSR we acquire excess and unused diabetic supplies so that we can get them to people who don't have insurance. If you have excess supplies stuffed in a box in your closet, don't let them expire and go to waste.
There are many people whose health, and even their lives, are at risk because they can not afford the tools to monitor their blood sugar. Anyone who lives with diabetes knows how dangerous this can be.
When you send your excess supplies to DSR, you will be helping some person, and maybe several people, re-gain control of their health.
By recycling, you may even save someone's life.
Items we accept as donations:
Test strips –Of course, non-expired; unopened test strips are needed most. Any brand.
Insulin Pumps and ALL related supplies
Cook books for Diabetics
Alcohol Wipes and other misc bandage materials
Glucose Tabs or Gel — Unopened, Unexpired
Any other non-prescription diabetic supplies
What we can't accept:
We are not licensed to dispense any prescription medications. If you send them to us, we will safely dispose of them.
Other prescription items
Please send insulin to Insulin For Life. They send these supplies to children living with diabetes in Third World countries. What they need more than anything else, and what DSR does not handle, is insulin.
For instructions on how to pack and ship the insulin to IFL, go to their web site at:
Please pack your donated supplies in a box that will keep the supplies from being crushed or broken.
