MEDICAL EQUIPMENT SUPPLIES
Need some crutches or a shower seat or maybe some other type of medical equipment? The church’s medical committee is trying to put a list together of members who would be willing to loan out their medical equipment to our members. If interested in loaning your equipment, please contact Renee Gravel at 368-2118 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Just in case you need something before we compile the list, please visit the Burke Hospice Thrifts and Gifts Store or the Foothills Thrift Shop on Main Street, Valdese. Both stores have gently used items for unbelievably low prices.
