“Medical Supplies to Iraq” Bay Area Packing Event

I just received an email from Stanford’s OASIS list. UCSF Medical school and the Alalusi Foundation are hosting a Medical supplies packing event. For those who are in the Bay Area, I hope you consider lending a hand that can go a long way in relieving the suffering of so many sick and wounded Iraqis. They need volunteers to help reorganize pallets to distribute to hospitals and clinics in Iraq. With 25 volunteers this can be done in a day. Here’s the info:

Dear Colleagues:

This is a reminder email to ask that you consider joining us on Saturday, September 27th from 9AM-5PM at the Alalusi Foundation in Hayward, CA for a huge “Medical Supplies to Iraq” packing event. We need to reorganize 40 pallets of medical supplies so that they can be shipped to different medical facilities in Iraq. We estimate that it will require at least 25 people to complete this in a day, so please see if you can find the time to contribute to something that will be of very real, tangible and direct benefit to the citizens of Iraq.

The Iraq Action Group will cover gas and tolls, and the Alalusi Foundation will provide lunch and snacks. Directions to the facility are provided below.

Please RSVP to me at so that we know who is coming and can help arrange carpools.

Best wishes,

For Directions:


The location is at the Pressure Grout Company, 1975 National Ave., Hayward, CA 94545
