‘Second Chances’ lends medical equipment

Soroptimist International of the Olympic Rain Forest (SIORF) has embarked on a new project called Second Chances: Medical Equipment Loan Closet (MELC) as a community service project.

SIORF is an international organization with a mission of improving lives in communities as well as empowering women and girls worldwide.

Second Chances will be lending medical equipment to residents living in the West End, including Forks, Neah Bay, Sekiu and Clallam Bay of Western Clallam and Jefferson counties.

The following medical supplies will be available: canes, wheelchairs, walkers, commode, crutches and bath benches; as items become available, the inventory will increase.

Loans and donations can be arranged by calling 360-374-9496, ext. 2.

Any and all equipment in good, clean and working order will be accepted. No junk.

Call 360-374-9496, ext. 2, if you would like to donate or borrow from our MELC.

This is a business office, so please leave a message with your name and phone number if the line is busy. You will receive a return call from the SIORF member on call.

There is no fee to borrow any items; however, financial donations are gladly accepted to help the cause.

Any questions, call 360-640-1494 or 360-640-3186.
