Matthew 25 Pill Box Donations
Matthew 25 Pill Box Go back to Helping Hands Home Page
In developing countries, medicines when actually obtainable are often dispensed into hands, pockets, leaves or any other available container. Matthew 25 Ministries accepts donations of basic medical supplies such as empty pill bottles to help improve health care quality in developing nations. Donations of clean, unlabeled pill bottles help the poorest of the poor in many ways: Medicine can be distributed in sterile containers. Pill bottles that are not appropriate for shipping are recycled for cash that goes towards Matthew 25 Ministries’ programs. This plastic recycling program keeps thousands of bottles out of landfills each year.
Matthew 25: Ministries accepts the following types of empty pill bottles (clean and unlabelled please):
- Prescription pill bottles
- Large and small pill bottles
- Pill bottles with and without child resistant caps
- Over-the-counter pill bottles
Placing a nickel, dime or quarter in each pill bottle helps with shipping costs.
