The mission of Project Sloopy is to reduce the amount of domestic medical waste, and precipitate growth by salvaging excess and unused medical supplies from families of special needs children that grow out of their supplies, home care patients, hospital surplus and redistribute them to families that need them, both domestically and worldwide.
When Tom & Kate Mallery had their first child, they had no idea anything was wrong, little Ana Cru was not breathing at birth and was immediately rushed to the NICU. Ana spent 3 months there. She was never diagnosed, her condition so frail, her family was given very little hope and brought their angel home on hospice. In 6 months of life, she went from 3 hospitals, 6 separate wings, and even a helicopter to bring her to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, where her family selflessly moved so that she could get the worlds best care.
Ana passed away in February 2013, but her spirit lives on. Her parents started Project Sloopy, in her honor. Project Sloopy gathers medical supplies and equipment from various donators (mostly from hospitals, home care agencies, medical supply companies, and patients homes) and they redistribute them to families that desperately need them.
