Donate Medical Equipment and Supplies

How does it work?

Step 1. Read through our list of not accepted items here.

  • Double-check that your donations are clean and in good condition, with all parts and pieces accounted for.
  • Have something we don’t accept? Check out our resources page for other options.

Step 2. Find a ReCARES location.

  • ReCARES Oakland is open Fridays, 12 PM-4 PM
  • ReCARES SF is open Thursdays, 10 AM-3 PM
  • ReCARES Marin is open Wednesdays, 11 AM-2 PM
    • We cannot accept donations outside our working hours. It is not a donation if it is not accepted. Dumping at our site outside our working hours is illegal and jeopardizes our operation.

Step 3. Arrive and wait for a volunteer to help you.

  • You do not need an appointment.
  • We will confirm what can and cannot be received onsite. The policies and guidelines available on this website are subject to change. The site manager or volunteer in charge of donations will make the final call at the time of your donation.
  • If you want to save time, come with a list of what you are bringing.
  • If you would like one, we will provide you with a donation receipt. We cannot document the value of your donation per IRS regulations.
