At Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, patients often arrive unexpectedly, at times via Medevac. These patients and their families are always in need of immediate assistance in an unfamiliar place. To make their stay just a little bit more comfortable, toiletries are distributed by Comfort Cart by Red Cross volunteers every single day of the year.

We understand that there is tremendous need in our communities, country and the world to help those affected by Covid-19. We are continuing our 2nd annual supply drive to support military patients and their families to defray the surprise costs incurred by unplanned visits to Walter Reed Hospital. Please consider contributing to our collection drive which is extended through Tuesday, May 12. All gift cards and items collected will directly ease the burden on military patients and their families who are serving our country.
 
Thank you to Connie Cantrell A.B.'82 for spearheading this project. The container for supplies is on the front porch if you want to leave items at her home. She has left the lid off so that no one has to touch the container. Alternatively, you may mail items or gift cards directly to Connie’s home. In this unprecedented time, we know that you have been contacted by many groups for community service opportunities. Thank you for considering support of this important DukeDC Duke Alums Engage project.
