From the Medical Equipment Closet



The Medical Equipment Closet is FULL!


Several years ago, the Deacons began to collect donations of durable medical equipment to loan out to our members and others in the community. You have all responded beyond our wildest expectations! Thank you! In fact, we now have so much equipment, that there is little room to add more to the closet! For now, please check with the church office to find out if we can accept any donation.


We currently have several types of wheelchairs, adjustable crutches, walkers (with and without wheels), shower seats, raised toilet seats, a “scooter” for post-ankle surgery, and an electric “Amigo” type cart.


If you, or anyone you know has a temporary need for any type of this equipment, we are more than happy to see that you get anything in our closet that fits your needs! Just contact the church office with your request, or stop by the church and visit the closet to find what you may need.


Thank you to all who have provided the equipment. To those who have used it… thank you for its return!
