Please see the invitation below for our next durable medical equipment donation event at Mano a Mano on Saturday, October 22nd from 9am-11am. Our local Twin Cities donation program is to help individuals who lack insurance coverage or the financial means to obtain durable medical equipment commercially. Please send any requests to [email protected].
What to Include in a Request
Please be as specific as possible with requests (including user’s approximate height/weight, if relevant) to minimize the number of back and forth emails required for clarity. We strongly prefer that requests come from health care staff (providers, therapists, nurses, social workers, care coordinators, etc.) if possible, because we get accurate and detailed information of exactly what equipment is needed. Please be sure that the recipient has a way to pick up the requested equipment (anyone can pick up the requested equipment, but the person who comes to the warehouse will need to sign the liability waiver).
Distributing Medical Supplies in Bolivia & the Twin Cities
Mano a Mano’s recovered resources program collects donated medical supplies, mobility equipment, and other items in Minnesota for shipment to Bolivia, where they are distributed to people and organizations in need throughout the country. Mano a Mano also regularly provides mobility equipment and other items to people and organizations in the Twin Cities, working around the world. Most of these supplies are destined for Minnesota landfills, but instead they are put to good use.
Preparing For Our Next Shipment in November
We have sent 6 containers with 148,495 pounds of supplies from Minnesota to Bolivia in 2022, and we are starting to prepare for our next shipment in November.
