Insulin for Texas
This website is a coordinating page to help deliver insulin and other diabetes supplies to Texas as a result of the catastrophic flooding.
We have drop off locations listed below. All donations must be made before Friday, September 8. We will assemble and ship on Monday, September 11.
Here's how you can help:
- Check your diabetes supplies for extra insulin. You usually find this in the butter compartment in your fridge.
- Check the expiration date of the insulin to make sure it is after December 2017.
- Choose a location to drop off your supplies.
- Follow the instructions for the drop off.
If you would prefer to make a financial donation, you can do so via Insulin for Life.
We primarily need:
Insulin with an expiration date after December 2017.
We will also take a limited amount of syringes, swabs, BG testing kits and other supplies. Please check the Insulin for Life criteria for specific questions. Also, we reserve the right not to take supplies that are not priority needs at this time.
As of Tuesday, August 29, we have drop off locations in North Seattle, Central Seattle, South Seattle, Edmonds/Shoreline, South Sound, Tacoma, Everett, Marysville, Mount Vernon, Mukilteo, West Seattle and Bellevue / Eastside.
Let us know via this form and we'll be in touch
as quickly as we can.
This project is led by Rachel Kudrna and Jake Johnston with regional drop off support from Claire Crouch, Wendy Costello, John Highet, Lisa Michaud, Jamie Elzea, John Fot, Karis Tsolomitis, Stacey Basse, Carol Schreifels, Susannah Iltis, Joni Campbell and Shawna Smith.
