Coronavirus Update - June 9, 2020:
The Wheelchair Warehouse loans durable medical equipment to folks in Whatcom and Skagit Counties. Equipment loaned includes wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, canes, and bedside and bathroom helpers of all kinds.
The Warehouse runs entirely on donated medical equipment. If you have any unused medical equipment, please consider donating it to the Warehouse. You will have the satisfaction of knowing that your gift will be used by many people in the years to come. A donation receipt can be provided.
While we loan equipment at no cost to the user, we do gladly accept check, cash, and credit card donations to support our ongoing efforts to maintain the equipment we loan out.
Terms and conditions: Equipment is loaned to the public regardless of economic status. We do not sell or rent medical equipment. There is no charge for your use of the equipment. Equipment is loaned for a period of three months. This loan period may be extended if need is demonstrated.
Other Than Mobility Equipment Donations: There are some items that are too large for us to store or handle at the Warehouse. These include lift vans, hospital beds, and lift chairs. It is recommended that you offer these items for sale on Craig’s List or E-Bay. You can offer it for free in the Bellingham Herald, Facebook Market Place or Whatcom Buy, Sell, or Trade. We, unfortunately, cannot accept personal medical equipment such as knee braces, boots, etc.
What’s Happening at the Warehouse
Our Wheelchair Warehouse recently purchased an AquaPhase Washer/Sterilizer machine. We were able to purchase it because of a generous donation from the Paul H. Paulsen Foundation Fund of Phoenix, AZ. The videos demonstrate the new machine in operation and Doug Scholten, Warehouse volunteer, performing the same task the old fashioned way.
