Clear Out Old Equipment for a Good Cause

What do you do when you no longer need medical equipment? In many cases, it ends up in a basement corner or back of a closet. It can be tough to get rid of something that was originally very expensive but is no longer used.

St. Louis HELP (Health Equipment Lending Program) provides a better option than uselessly storing old equipment. The non-profit organization provides people in need with access to free home medical equipment through their recycle and reuse program.

Through St. Louis HELP, you can make a tax-deductible donation that will improve the life of someone in need. To contribute used (or new) equipment, call 314-567-4700. Or conveniently stop by a participating Walgreens during the upcoming Medical Equipment Donation Drive on Saturday, October 8, 2016 from 9:00am to 2:00pm.
