It was a very impressive year for the Medical Equipment Recycling Program. At a time when insurances are covering less equipment, we are thankful to community donations that have enabled us to help even more people.
MERP loaned 2,989 pieces of equipment to 2,114 people in 2015, a 39% increase over 2014’s recipient numbers. The total value of the equipment we loaned this year is $671,690.
With your donations, we loaned 305 wheelchairs, 576 shower/tub chairs, 103 hospital beds and 42 lift chairs.
Additionally, we made over 175 pickups and deliveries in 2015, assisting those who cannot get to MERP.
We cannot do it without YOUR support. Please consider donating today. Equipment can be brought to either MERP location. Call us at 724-347-6377 to make arrangements. Financial support assists us with refurbishing expenses.
In comparison, the totals for the entire year of 2014:
MERP loaned 2,142 pieces of equipment valued at $303,476 to 1,538 people.
