Comments about “PROJECT C.U.R.E.

  • Helping out at Project C.U.R.E. is fulfilling, given their lifesaving work, and everyone that volunteers and interns there is very friendly. There is always tons to do, so you’ll never be left bored waiting for a task. You can either help out in the warehouse, which is slightly more physical but where the tasks are more varied, or sort medical supplies indoors in the air conditioning. Whichever your preference may be, you can always grab a popsicle from the fridge and chat with the other high school and college age people there when you need a break!
