Project C.U.R.E. provides used and new medical supplies to countries that need them most in an effort to provide better healthcare for everyone. The First Ladies’ Luncheon is a charity event where guests attend the lunch, listen to speakers, and donate money for the cause. This year’s special guest was the First Lady of Mozambique, who expressed in Portuguese the need of her country and how much Project C.U.R.E. has helped so far.
Rick and Phyllis Chaney reserved a table at the luncheon and invited UHL students to be their guests. The students didn’t have to donate as the Chaneys covered that, but they got to devour delicious food as they listened to community members talk about the importance of Project C.U.R.E and about how to get involved. The speakers highlighted the ability to volunteer with Project C.U.R.E.
Later this semester, UHLers will go to the Project C.U.R.E. warehouse to pack supplies into boxes so they can be shipped to hospitals that need them most. Getting involved with a cause is not all about money, but also about doing something. And for UHL students, that something will be helping out at the warehouse.
