UCC Medical Equipment Loan Program

(800) 671-4201 Debbie Labbe, Program Coordinator   medequiploan@ucccornwall.org

 If you need medical equipment, the UCC Medical Equipment Loan Program is here for you! Located at the United Church of Christ, 8 Bolton Hill Road, Cornwall.

We have a wide range of medical equipment to loan including wheelchairs, hospital beds, lift chairs, walkers, tub-transfer benches, shower seats, and much, much more. Just call our program coordinator to discuss your needs and pickup arrangements. We ask that patrons pick up and drop off all equipment. In exceptional circumstances, we may be able to find volunteers to transport the equipment.

The program is free to everyone in Northwestern Connecticut and surrounding communities.


Equipment: We love donations of clean, gently used medical equipment. Contact Debbie.

Financial Support: This program free-of-charge due to the generous support of this congregation and the community. To make a donation, send your check to UCC Cornwall (with Medical Equipment Loan Program in the memo), Box 35, 8 Bolton Hill Road, Cornwall, CT 06753.
