If you haven’t stopped by HERO for awhile, the next time you visit, you may notice some changes. Recently, a group of volunteers painted our retail store walls a light HERO green color and complimentary gray. We’re so grateful for the work the volunteers from Faith United Methodist Church. We also recovered our welcome desk to match.
Take a look at the new space:
There are still quite a few yellow walls left in our hallway, board room, work room, and offices. We’re currently looking for small groups of great painting volunteers to help us finish up the transformation.
Please contact Georgia if your group would like to volunteer or call 701-212-1921.
For fourteen years, Liberia’s civil war destroyed families, communities, and their ability to meet healthcare needs. Now the war is over, but the damage remains. People are left with poor living conditions and face disease. On Friday, October 4, the United Nimba Citizen’s Council picked up thirteen pallets of healthcare supplies from HERO to send overseas to their counterparts in Liberia.
The United Nimba Citizen’s Council helps rebuild Nimba County, a county of Liberia, through unity, advocacy, public education and networking among its membership. One of the objectives of the organization is to improve the quality of education, healthcare, and community development among UNICCO members both in Liberia and in the United States.
Their partnership with HERO, Healthcare Equipment Recycling Organization will assist with this objective. The representatives from UNICCO were so grateful for the supplies they received; they even brought lunch for HERO staff!
Posted below, you’ll hear more about their group and how HERO will impact our global community in Liberia.

Georgia, our Operations Director, rarely takes vacation. When she does, she takes a week off to travel to Haiti with the FM medical mission team. So this year, when she took a vacation for a week to visit friends in Colorado, it was the perfect opportunity for an office prank.
