First Lutheran Church makes a wide variety of health and mobility equipment available to our church community through free, no-time-limit loans of donated equipment. This program depends on donations of used equipment, which we then clean and get ready for lending to those in need. Items include things like, wheelchairs, canes, shower chairs, walkers, crutches etc. that are in good repair.
To Borrow Equipment:
- Call the Care and Health Office at 605-339-1983 ext 237 or the Church Office at 605-336-3734 to see if the equipment you need is available. We'll ask you a few simple questions so we know who you are and how to get in touch with you, and to see if there may be some other needs you hadn’t thought of.
- Tell us what you need. If we have it, you can pick it up the same day! If we don't have it, we'll keep your name and number, and call you when the item you requested is donated to see if you are still in need.
- Pick it up. When you get here, you'll fill out one simple form and sign for the items.
Giving hope in the form of medical equipment
and an opportunity to share the love of Jesus Christ
To Donate Equipment:
Simply bring the equipment to the office between the hours of 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday.
Without donors, we could not provide this service. Your donations give some of our community's most vulnerable member’s safety, mobility, independence, opportunity, and dignity.
If you have "gently used" health or mobility equipment gathering dust in your home, bring them to us! Every piece we make available to our members comes directly from donors like you.
We are not able to accept prescription medications or medical equipment that can only be distributed via prescription (such as oxygen concentrators). There are other equipment items that we are not able to process through this program due to space and staff limitations.
