Diabetes Get Involved

DIABETES-GET INVOLVED (DGI) is a charitable organization serving the community since 2010. Test Strips Rescue is the division of the organization whose primary activity is to save lives by recycling unused diabetic test strips we acquire from people who have extras. Then we redistribute them to diabetic children and adults who can’t afford to test. We accept all other diabetic and medical supplies as a donation and rehome them through donating them to many of the organizations listed below.

Test Strips Rescue acquires extra diabetic test strips from people with an excess for a variety of legitimate reasons ranging from their blood glucose meter being replaced by their doctor and their test strips become incompatible with the new meter; test strips get left behind when a relative dies; test strips were only needed during pregnancy, the person's diabetes normalized and they no longer need to test, and a host of other reasons. Some diabetic test strips are donated to us; others we purchase new sealed in the box to recycle rather than allowing them to expire and go to waste or be discarded into the landfill. We then donate them to impoverished diabetics. Uninsured or underinsured people who can afford to do so can purchase boxes for up to 75% discount through our test strips distribution. We accept diabetic test strips donations and monetary funds as a donation.

  • Offers mentoring and referral resources to diabetics in the community. We operate daily at street level locally; meeting diabetics in person every day with physical, financial, emotional, dietary, and mental difficulties as a result of this debilitating disease and attempt to point them to help.
