Want to free up the space where that old, no-longer-needed medical equipment — walkers, canes, shower benches, wheelchairs, or scooters, for example —- sits gathering dust?
Look no further than NEAT (New England Assistive Technology) Resource and Education Center at Oak Hill. NEAT accepts tax-deductible donations of gently used medical equipment, which it repairsa, restores, and sells to consumers.
NEAT is a non-profit organization with locations in Hartford and Stratford that provides innovative solutions, services, and advocacy for people of all ages with disabilities. Donations of medical equipment may be brought to the NEAT truck, which will be parked outside the Ridgefield Visiting Nurse Association’s 40th Annual Health Fair at East Ridge Middle School on Saturday, April 5, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Also, if you are in need of a medical device of any type, NEAT maintains an extensive inventory of restored equipment for sale at a savings of 50% to 80% of the original cost. For more information, call NEAT toll-free at 866-526-4492, visit their website at neatmarketplace.org.
