New Jersey residents with old crutches, walkers, wheelchairs, mobility aids, bed lifts, caregiver supplies and first aid supplies can donate these products so that others can access the supplies and equipment they need. Choosing the best option for donation depends on the type of equipment you have and the part of the state in which you live. If you donate to a 501(c)3 organization, your medical equipment donation is tax deductible, so make sure you get a tax receipt showing the fair market value of the donated items.
Bring medical equipment to Your ReSource in Ewing, New Jersey (yourresourcenj.org), or contact the office directly to arrange a pickup anywhere in Mercer County. Your ReSource accepts donations Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Saturdays by appointment only. They collect unopened medical supplies and used medical mobility and assistive equipment.
List your medical equipment on Back in Action, a classified ad website maintained by Disability Rights New Jersey (drnj.org). This website accepts listings for assistive technology and items for daily living, like shower benches or chair lifts. You can sell your equipment or offer it for free to someone near you who needs it.
Send hearing aids of any size, type or condition to Help the Children Hear (helpthechildrenhear.org), located in Caldwell, New Jersey. Used hearing aids will be reconditioned, then given to needy children.
