Community Aid Refurbished Equipment Store (CARES)

CARES logoCARES serves as a community benefit to provide area residents in need with refurbished medical equipment such as wheelchairs, tub benches, shower chairs, scooters, canes and more.

Through CARES, area residents who have a temporary or permanent medical need, a visiting relative in need of equipment, or just know someone who needs to be made more comfortable, now have a place to obtain costly medical equipment free of charge. Those who receive CARES refurbished equipment may re-donate it when no longer needed, so the cycle of giving can continue.

CARES appreciates your donations of gently used medical equipment. Right now we especially need shower chairs/tub benches, wheelchairs and lightweight transport wheelchairs. Thank you!
