SXU soccer players volunteer to sort medical supplies for needy people in developing world

Students volunteered with Hospital Sisters Mission Outreach in Chicago

Chicago (April 14, 2011) Members of Saint Xavier University’s men’s soccer team recently volunteered to help sort medical supplies for needy people in the developing world.

Head Coach Ed Vucinic said twelve students spent about three and half hours sorting medical supplies that will be shipped around the world at Hospital Sisters Mission Outreach in Chicago. The charity helps meet unmet medical needs of people in developing countries by recovering hundreds of thousands of pounds of equipment and supplies deemed surplus by U.S.-based healthcare providers. The surplus is then sorted, cleaned, repaired, inventoried, and published in an online catalog where needy hospitals and clinics can “shop” for what they need.

Vucinic said the team plans to do more charity work “as often as possible.”

“My belief is we’re put on Earth to serve other people,” Vucinic said. “The guys enjoyed it, it was a great experience and a great cause.”
