Medical Supplies

Donations of Medical Equipment & Supplies CARE Chest was founded 30 years ago on the generosity of the community who donated their gently used medical equipment and supplies. We remain dependent on that generous spirit. If you are planning to donate your gently used equipment or supplies, please call our offices at 775-829-2273 before making the trip to our North Virginia Street headquarters. Team members and signage will be available to help make the donation process easy and safe.

Items we need

There are items that CARE Chest can always use, including:  wheelchairs, shower and commode seats, transfer benches and other bathroom safety items; hospital-style beds, scooters, electric wheelchairs and other mobility items; diabetic testing supplies, including test strips and lancets; syringes for diabetic clients who use insulin; Ostomy/colostomy supplies, incontinence protection (adult diapers and Pull-Ups); Ensure, Glucerna and Carnation Instant breakfast for our Medical Nutrition Program.

Items we don’t take

Sometimes our stock of certain items, like crutches, exceeds the needs of our clients. We cannot accept respiratory equipment or prescription medications of any kind.
