make a difference locally and globally

Over 7,000 tons of usable medical supplies are discarded every day by hospitals and clinics in the United States. Most of these items are incinerated or deposited in landfills. 

Second-Breath, established in 2013 and now partnered with UC Davis School of Medicine, is an environmentally conscious, socially oriented cooperative for the advancement of community clinics and health centers in Sacramento and beyond. We take your unused medical supplies and help distribute them to areas of need.
