If you can’t pick up the items in person, SOS will provide and pack them into a special box with for a $50 administration/pulling/and packing fee for sending goods them within the U.S. If you wish to send quantities to a hospital or clinic abroad, SOS will fill a 40-foot container with six to eight tons of needed supplies and equipment-typically worth $100,000 to $300,000. SOS usually charges a $12,500 donation for this.
