Donate your diabetes supplies to help those in need!

The Diabetes Supply Donation Service, provided by the Central Ohio Diabetes Association, allows the public to donate certain unused, unopened, unexpired, and non-prescription diabetes supplies.

Federal, state, and local guidelines have been established regarding the types of diabetic supplies that may or may not be donated. All supplies must be sealed and unexpired. We cannot accept supplies specifically prescribed to an individual, including insulin, insulin needles, and test strips.
