Access to medical and mobility aids can be life-changing for a person with a disability. 

For some, a walker might be all they need to attend events at a library or community center. For others, a shower chair may make bathing safer and more comfortable, and in turn allow them to socialize with confidence. Whatever the equipment needed, MMEC is here to ensure that individuals with disabilities can move through their communities with ease.

Join Us in Our Work

Each year, the MMEC distributes over 6,500 walkers, wheelchairs, Hoyer lifts, and other pieces of durable medical equipment to those who might not otherwise be able to afford them. This work, which touches more than 3,000 lives annually, relies on donations of gently used medical equipment from community members like you.  

Donating to the MMEC 

Donating to the MMEC puts life-changing medical and adaptive equipment into the hands of people who need it and diverts usable items from landfills.  

The following information may be helpful in deciding whether your items can be donated to the MMEC:

  • Is the equipment heavily soiled or rusted? Heavily soiled or rusted equipment is a long a process and not a guarantee we will be able to restore the equipment, this also take times away from our volunteer to work on usable equipment.
  • Are all the part to the equipment present?
  • Is the equipment more than 10 years old? Equipment that is 10 years or older is difficult to repair and refurbish or to find parts for.
  • Is the equipment heavily damage or broken?
  • If the equipment is not usable can it be used for spare parts?

PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE EQUIPMENT AT THE MMEC OUTSIDE OF OUR OPEN HOURS —disposing of equipment that is broken or that does not fit our program takes up resources and hurts our ministry. 


Please note that we reserve the right to reject any items that we feel to be in poor condition or which are not suited to our ministry.

Thank you for your support 

The walker Paul donated last week was exactly what Barbara needed to get back to attending events at her local library. The scooter Chris neighbor passed on made it possible for Jordan to keep up with her grandkids on a recent family vacation. Even the shoehorn that Joshua dropped off has made a big difference, helping Jim to continue dressing himself independently as he ages—thereby allowing him to remain in his own home for a few more years.  

Moreover, your donations aren’t limited to mobility aids; they extend to the domain of critical medical supplies too. For example, the contribution of prescription medications, such as Strattera, can provide essential relief to individuals who struggle with health conditions like ADHD, and can sometimes be beneficial in addressing symptoms associated with other disorders. By donating to the MMEC, you’re not just giving a medication; you’re offering an opportunity for someone to manage their health condition more effectively, improving their quality of life, their safety, and their sense of belonging in their community. Please note that any medication donations must be in their original packaging and have not expired. It is crucial to ensure that we maintain the highest safety standards in providing assistance to those in need.

When you donate medical equipment to the MMEC, you’re not just donating a walker, shower chair, or Hoyer lift; you’re giving the gift of safety, wellbeing, and community access to a person with a disability.

Thank you for your support, we couldn’t do this without you!
