Donate Medical Equipment & Supplies

Medical equipment does no good sitting in garages, closets, storage units, etc. We accept new and used equipment in good condition. Because of our limited time and resources, we cannot accept equipment that is broken or in need of major repairs. We can only accept power wheelchairs that are in excellent condition and in good working order. We are not accepting power wheelchairs older than about 5 years or chairs in need of repair. If batteries are all that is needed and all else meets these criteria, we are glad to receive the chair.

Exceptions: We do not accept donations of medical equipment we cannot demonstrate, such as stair chairs and wheelchair lifts. Due to space limitations we do not accept electric beds and bariatric hospital beds larger than 42 inches wide (we gladly accept regular size hospital beds). We also do not take shower chairs made of PVC pipe and greater than 30 inches deep. Please check ahead of time if you are in doubt about donating larger equipment.

Bridge Disability Ministries is able to offer low-cost medical equipment thanks to donations from:

  • Families whose loved one has passed away
  • Service groups that collect and donate equipment or money
  • Churches that donate equipment no longer needed by members
  • Businesses that are reducing inventory or closing
  • Adult care facilities and medical facilities

How Donations Work

Bring your used equipment to one of our drop-off locations during their open hours.

Power wheelchairs, electric scooters and other large equipment are only accepted at the Bridge Meyer Medical Equipment Center in Bellevue. Staff and volunteers there can assist with unloading larger equipment.

You will receive a donation receipt for your records. Since we are a non-profit charity (501c3), your donation may be tax deductible.

We do not purchase equipment.

Please note that we no longer have a Fremont location.

What Happens to Donated Equipment?

All equipment is cleaned and checked by volunteers to make sure it is ready for the next user. An equipment washing machine uses detergent and a disinfectant at high temperatures. New UV ray equipment will also help with cleaning.

Electric equipment and large equipment is cleaned by hand. Two volunteers perform a final check on a piece of equipment before making it available.

Medical Supplies Go International

We accept donations of nearly all types of medical supplies. Those that can’t be used in the U.S. are passed on to other nonprofits that do medical mission work in less developed countries or give aid to refugees in war-­torn areas. We also pass on any medical equipment we are not able to use in our ministry.

You get the satisfaction of knowing your used items are helping people elsewhere instead of going into a landfill here. Over the past year, our international donations have accounted for $900,000 of the $3.1 million of medical equipment and supplies we have given out.
