We accept regular-size medical equipment and supplies (crutches, canes, knee scooters, wheelchairs, and rollator walkers) at our locations. These items can be donated directly to our distribution sites.
However, due to our limited storage space, we cannot accept larger items at our sites (like hospital beds). For larger equipment, we have a Referrals List.
How does the Referrals List work?
If you are looking to donate or receive larger equipment, we ask you to fill out a form (link below) and one of our staff members will be in touch with you.
- You tell us what you have to donate or what you need.
- If you are a donor, we would put you in contact with someone needing the equipment you have.
- If you are looking for equipment, we will connect you to someone seeking to donate what you need.
- You will arrange delivery/pick up at your convenience directly with the donor/recipient.*
- Once a recipient has confirmed receipt of the equipment, ReCARES will provide a donation receipt if the donor requires it.
*ReCARES does not offer pick up or delivery services for any item
- Hospital Beds
- Hoyer Lifts
- Sara Stedy / Sit2Stand / Squat Assist
- Standing Frames
- Geri Chairs
- Lazy-Boy Chairs
Please do not fill out this form if the item you want to donate is not part of our accepted items listed above. An examination table is not the same as a hospital bed, and an electric wheelchair is not the same as a Geri chair. Filling out the form with items that are not listed here only jeopardizes our operations and slows down the process of matching people.
If you are unsure whether a piece of equipment qualifies as one that we accept, please call us before entering your information into the form.
What about electric wheelchairs/scooters and pediatric equipment?
If you are looking for or want to donate electric wheelchairs, electric scooters, or pediatric equipment, please see our Resources page. For smaller equipment and medical supplies, please come to any of our locations during open hours.
If you have read the instructions above and would like us to help you find or donate larger medical equipment,
fill out the form* and we will contact you soon.
*Please notice you will be required to sign in using a Gmail account before completing the form.
