Darby Dental Supply and American Red Cross Molloy College Campus Club Send Supplies to Devastated Japan

Here's another effort to help those stricken by the disaster in Japan...

 

Much-Needed Medical Supplies Sent Directly to Makeshift Shelter in Kesennuma

Jericho, NY (April 6, 2011) – Darby Dental Supply, LLC, the largest all-telesales national distributor of dental merchandise, recently partnered with students from the American Red Cross Molloy College Campus Club to create a 30’ container of much-needed medical supplies for an area in Japan that was devastated by the recent earthquake and tsunami.

 

The container included essential medical emergency items such as isolation gowns, gloves, and face masks.  The supplies were shipped overseas directly to a temporary shelter set up in an elementary school in Kesennuma, Japan, located in the extreme northeast of Miyagi Prefecture.  The Kesennuma area was hit especially hard by the recent earthquakes and tsunami, and was further devastated by the fires that broke out in the area following the two natural disasters.

 

“Through our contact, Ms. Junko Fujiwara, we were able to ship supplies directly to the shelter,” remarked Darby President, Gary Rosenberg.  “We would not have been able to work as efficiently as we did without the help of the American Red Cross Molloy College Campus Club, who put many hours into organizing and assembling the massive container of supplies.”

 

Due to its wide array of healthcare products readily on hand, Darby was able to pull from its vast inventory to provide a large number of medical supplies for medical professionals to properly attend to victims affected by the tragedies.

 

Darby’s recent donation to Japan is just one of many ongoing philanthropic efforts conducted by the company.  Darby has also long supported U.S. troops deployed overseas, including a recent generous donation of various hygiene items sent to soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Moreover, for the past five years, Darby has had a Full Pay Deployment Program in place for its own National Guard and Reserve member employees.  The program also ensures that their jobs will be waiting for them when they return.
