Who are we?
Grace Episcopal Church has had years of experience lending medical equipment to those that would not otherwise have access to these items. Many items, such as wheelchairs and walkers, are quite costly. Most people who utilize our Lending Closet either do not have insurance, or have plans that only partially cover such equipment. Our volunteers manage the Medical Lending Closet. We do not charge anything for the loan of the medical equipment; however there may be a small deposit required for certain motorized items to ensure they are returned in good condition for the next person to use.
All donations are tax deductible and are used to refurbish donated items, as well as purchase requested equipment that we do not have on hand. We provide the receipt that allows you to enter the value of items donated. We accept all medical equipment in good working order and may accept things in need of minor repairs. We accept adult diapers only in unopened packages. We always ask that things donated be clean and be brought in during our business hours.
Most communities have an ongoing need for medical equipment. There are many people who cannot afford the items they need. In some cases a hospitalized patient may not be released until they have the medical equipment necessary. Staff at Grace is available to provide assistance and information about this ministry to anyone interested in starting a Lending Closet in their parish. We also have available a list we compiled of the more common pieces of medical equipment and their retail cost, which we will be happy to provide.
