Mano a Mano has excess durable medical equipment that we are making available for individuals in the Twin Cities, for free, on Saturday, September 11th from 9am-11am. Please send specific requests to firstname.lastname@example.org; we will confirm whether we can fulfill your specific request. Recipients must be a healthcare provider in some capacity and must sign a liability waiver upon receipt; we generally cannot provide equipment to individuals directly. We are happy to have one healthcare/social work/nursing/case manager representative collect multiple pieces of equipment to share with other colleagues/recipients.
- WHEN: Saturday, September 11th from 9am-11am
- WHERE: Mano a Mano International, 925 Pierce Butler Route, St. Paul, MN 55104 (outside in the parking lot, in COVID-safe conditions)
- Equipment Readily Available: walkers, rollators, crutches, canes, raised toilet seats, commodes, shower chairs, tub benches, bed rails, glucometers

This project is a collaboration with Twin Cities-area physical therapists to help distribute mobility equipment to their clients that have difficulty acquiring needed items. We are planning to have equipment giveaways once a month. We will share each upcoming date as soon as it is confirmed.
