Saturday, May 5 at area Walgreens
St. Louis HELP (Health Equipment Lending Program) is holding an area-wide Medical Equipment Donation Drive on Saturday, May 5.
Clean the attic, garage or basement and make a tax-deductible donation of your medical equipment at one of the designated Walgreens drop off locations. St. Louis HELP loans the donated home medical items to anyone in need at no cost or fee.
The following items are accepted:
- manual and power wheelchairs
- electric hospital beds
- shower chairs
- grab bars
- elevated toilet seats
- portable commodes
- lift chairs
- seating cushions
- back supports
- folding ramps
- every type of item EXCEPT oxygen and medications
St. Louis HELP thanks you for your support. The uninsured, underinsured, disabled and elderly are at particular risk of facing barriers to accessing medical equipment. These vulnerable populations continue to experience reduced access to health care services demonstrating a continuing need for a strong and viable safety net.
