Insulin for Life Partnership

Date Posted: 04/26/2024


Diabetes is a global problem, and with this disease comes a variety of obstacles that individuals are forced to face, most prominently being a lack of insulin. 900,000 children with Type 1 Diabetes, from over 70 countries, suffer from this need, sometimes dying as a result. This unacceptable reality is unfair, preying on those with limited access to resources and limited control over their circumstance.

We have partnered with Insulin For Life USA to help those needing diabetic supplies and insulin. 

Crawford County Coroner, Darren Dake has started the Diabetic Supplies Donation Program. This program collects donations of unexpired insulin and diabetic supplies for shipment to Insulin For Life USA (IFL), which distributes those life-saving supplies to those less fortunate in over 74 countries worldwide. IFL can also use supplies domestically during certain types of disasters (floods, tornadoes, etc.), where access to basic medical resources is severely limited.


"Our office often responds to homes where we collect medications which ultimately cannot be reused. Over the years, we have collected thousands of dollars worth of unused, unopened, and unexpired vials of insulin, insulin pens, cartridges, meters, lancets, and other diabetic supplies, which were destroyed at the end of our investigations. I am pleased to announce that we will no longer have to destroy these medications and supplies. I would also like to partner with all of you to help others in need by accepting donations of any of the accepted items.  Thank you so much for helping us help the world."  Coroner Darren Dake
