Local charity in need of medical equipment

in Community by

Are you taking advantage of cooling temperatures to clean out your garage and/or storage areas? If you have any lightly used medical equipment that is still in good condition, please consider donating it to The Lending Room. The Lending Room is an all-volunteer, 501(c) (3) charity that lends gently used medical equipment to individuals regardless of income, age or insurance status for a $1.00 donation. The organization aims to connect those who need medical equipment with unwanted equipment that would otherwise collect dust in an attic or be discarded. Operating in Beaufort since 1961, the organization accepts and loans items in good condition. Shower chairs, bath chairs, walkers, wheelchairs and transport chairs are in high demand. To arrange to donate or borrow items, please contact The Lending Room at (843) 524-2554. The pick-up/drop-off location is at Helena Place Senior Living at 1624 Paris Ave., Port Royal, SC 29935 directly across the street from the Port Royal Post Office. Arrangements for very large items must be made in advance. Tax deductible receipts can be given out upon request.
