REACHING OUR $500,000 GOAL
We have been talking about our move now for a number of months and as of August 1st we are now serving our clients from our new location. The response is growing with support already received from local contractors who are helping to keep the costs reasonable.
Community support still needed.
We still need the community’s support to help us with some of the amenities needed so we can operate efficiently. Please download the sponsorship package here or and contact Dawna for more information.
The Lending Cupboard is a registered charity that lends medical equipment to the people of Central Alberta. We receive support from a variety of service clubs and private donations. We also receive an annual grant from AHS and rely on other government grants to cover our budget.
The Lending Cupboard provides medical equipment to those who need it. Whether your needs are minor or more serious, we are here to help.
We have an inventory of more than 9,100 items and lend out approximately 1,300 pieces of medical equipment every month.
