Flood Related Durable Medical Equipment Needs

May 11, 2010 at 8:30 pm 2 comments

Margaret Eighmy, Margaret_Eighmy@ucpnashville.org, oversees the UCP Durable Medical Equipment Exchange. UCP collects, refurbishes and recycles durable medical, therapeutic and adaptive equipment. UCP does its best to match the needs of people with the availability of equipment. Because so many people had to leave their equipment behind to escape the Tennessee flood waters, there is an unusually high demand. Equipment is available for individuals and non-profit/charitable organizations.

Margaret requests that you:

1) Inventory your homes and businesses and donate any viable used durable medical equipment you are not using (shower benches, adult manual wheelchairs, shower aids, adaptive toilet items, etc.).

2) Communicate to your friends and contacts that they do the same.

3) Contact her at her email address or call 615-242-4091. Please contact her BEFORE you drop off your equipment at 1200 9th Avenue North, Suite 110, Nashville, TN 37208

Monetary contributions are also needed. You can donate through Giving Matters.
