Hiway 80 Mission Clinic

Our clinic right here in Longview is held every 2nd and 4th Wednesday, 3:00-6:00pm.

Nurse practitioners, physicians and even non-medical volunteers are needed.

Refuge International Warehouse

Every day, millions of dollars worth of used, but viable, medical equipment goes to waste in our landfills when it could be used in hospitals and clinics in developing countries. To date, Refuge has diverted over $2 million worth of equipment to Guatemala and Kenya, with the help of our partners at Vine International and Orphan Grain Train.

But this is not done without a significant amount of labor on the part of Refuge volunteers. All donations of supplies and equipment must be counted, boxed or crated, put on lists and prepared for shipment. This takes hours and hours of hard but rewarding work on our part and we can certainly use your help.

Are you handy with a hammer and nails? Are you an organizational expert? We want YOU!

Here are just some of the ways you could pitch in and help at the Refuge warehouse...

Crate Construction

We have multiple items that must be safely crated before shipping.

Sorting Supplies

If you are part of, or know of, a group or organization looking for a service project, why not book a date to come and work in the warehouse? Perhaps your youth or singles group is looking for a service project for an afternoon or evening. None of the work is difficult, but it is time consuming and as the saying goes, "Many hands make light work!"

Supply and Equipment Pickup

If you have time to drive to various towns and cities in Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas to pick up donated supplies, please let us know. There is always something to be picked up somewhere. You will usually need a truck and sometimes a trailer, as well. At times we get things donated in the Longview area and simply need someone to pick up medications or other supplies.

Contact us if you’re ready to pitch in and help (and why not bring a couple of friends with you!)
