In-Kind Donations: Needs List

In-Kind donations help us to significantly stretch our limited resources!

Our primary need is suture material:

  • Absorbable only
  • Packets or unopened cassettes.
  • Expired OK up to about 9–10 months so we can get them to the field before 12 months expiration
  • Synthetic absorbable: Vicryl, PGA, etc. Sizes 1, 0 , 2/0 and 3/0 only
  • Catgut/Chromic Catgut - Sizes 1, 0 and 2/0 only.

Please contact us at for more information and options to get donated items to us.

TAPA's field clinic protocols use a specific list of medications and consumables. Please do not send unlisted items without consultation, as they may be unusable in our protocols.
