We are busting at the seams and it’s a wonderful dilemma to have.
Because, clearly, the word is out. REquipment is a great place to bring your gently-used but no-longer-needed DME. We help families find appropriate homes for equipment that once made a big difference (or was rarely used) in their households. Sometimes this is an emotional decision. Sometimes it’s just a relief to know what to do with these devices. Regardless, everyone is glad to see valuable medical equipment get back to work in the hands of people who need it. Keep it up!
Now here’s another way you may be able to help…
REquipment needs free accessible storage space in Massachusetts. Know of an empty warehouse looking to benefit with a tax donation letter? Or another available space (at minimum 10 x 20 ft) that is easy to access from our van? Our reuse locations are filled to capacity and our overflow strategy is not a great solution.
Currently, we rent a 40-foot container and 3 storage units that receive donations faster than we can empty them. These units are expensive and on their own inadequate. Yet our capacity to store donations is what keeps our online inventory robust and our program a tremendous developing resource (indeed, we’d like to provide more categories of equipment in the future!)
If you know of a space that REquipment could access during regular business hours, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time to discuss.
If you’d like to contribute to the cost of storage, please visit our website at dmereuse.org and use our secure PayPal link. Don’t like to pay online? Send a check of any amount to REquipment, Inc., PO Box 311, Methuen, MA 01844.
REquipment’s capacity to move large volumes of donations means more adults and children with disabilities, including veterans and seniors, can stay active outside and confident inside their homes. Thank you for supporting our REquipment mission and helping us brainstorm storage solutions! (Another way to help? Share this blog post!)
