Your Connections are Needed!

I love those connections that make this big old world feel like a little village. – Gina Bellman

Due to COVID-19, all major construction work has been ordered to be on hold as the Dominican Republic follows nationwide orders to stay home. This, however, does not mean there is nothing that can be done right now for the REVOLUTION Project. We understand that now might be a challenging time for monetary contributions, so we instead are seeking connections to large businesses, hospitals, or corporations that could donate used or excess supplies, equipment, or furniture to help outfit the facility.


Our partner, MedShare, will be the main solution for gathering medical-related needs as well as some furniture items, but getting additional items at a reduced cost or even donated would lower what we pay MedShare and ease their workload. Although we deeply appreciate someone wanting to donate an item or two that they may personally own, SRI is in search of connections to wholesalers, manufacturers, hospitals, or large businesses who may be interested in helping.

Examples of connections/items that cannot be used:

  • Any used personal items from your home (including furniture and electronics)
  • Connection to that nice man at the hardware store

Examples of connections/items that could be used :

  • A group of 10 or more Windows computers, workstations, or servers that are only a few years old
  • 20 beds from a hospital
  • 40 chairs being replaced from the lobby of a business
  • A connection to a manufacturer or wholesaler who could provide their products at a reduced price, at cost, or as a full donation
  • Connection to someone who is head of international donations for a large corporation

If you have a possible lead to a connection, SRI is happy to provide more details with specifics and can communicate directly with the lead. Once the connection is established and the needed donation is confirmed, SRI can then help coordinate acquiring, storing, and then loading the supplies into a container for shipment to San Juan de La Maguana. We would also like to remind all interested businesses that gifts-in-kind are considered tax deductible. SRI already has some amazing companies who may be helping us with some of these items, but more help is still needed!

Specific Items Needed:


  • Waiting room chairs
  • Office desks and chairs
  • Office accessories (lamps, chairs, file cabinets, etc.)
  • Commercial file cabinets
  • Conference room table and chairs
  • Hospital beds and bedside tables
  • Stainless steel carts and tables
