Much of the equipment in our loan centers has been donated by our very generous ALS families. If you are interested in donating durable medical equipment or wish to provide a monetary donation to the ALS equipment fund, please notify your Care Services Coordinator. The funds received are used to purchase new equipment that is in high demand.
Please note these items generally are not accepted for donation (up to the discretion of your Care Services Coordinator):
- Hospital beds
- Lift chairs
- Power wheelchairs not in working order or older than 3 years
- Used bedside commodes & raised commode seats
- Feeding tube formula & supplies
- Incontinence products
- Respiratory supplies
- Shower chairs or benches
- Mattress pads
- Overbed tables
If you have any questions regarding any aspect of medical equipment or the operation of the loan program, please don’t hesitate to contact the chapter at 866-273-2572.
Donating or Selling to Others with ALS
If you have equipment or accessible vehicles that you would like to sell or provide for free to others living with ALS, we can advertise for you in our monthly Chapter Link newsletter.
Please send us an email at ALSohio@ALSohio.org with a short description of the item (no photos, please) and a contact number or email we can publish. We will edit your description to fit three lines, maximum, in the newsletter.
