Borrow what you need. Return or donate what you don't.
We are two local (NH / VT) clubs within Lions Clubs International, which is the largest service club organization in the world (with 1.42 million members in more than 47,000 clubs around the globe).Since 1917, Lions have strengthened local communities through hands-on service and humanitarian projects. We focus on supporting sight, hunger, the environment, childhood cancer, diabetes, youth, disaster relief and humanitarian issues. Lions have an ambitious goal of helping 200 million people per year so we can bring even more service to more people than ever before. For more information about Lions Clubs International, visit lionsclubs.org.In our two local clubs we collect medical equipment donations and provide that equipment free of charge to the local community, including eyeglasses, wheelchairs, walking aids, etc. We organize vision tests for local primary schools, fund scholarships for local students, pay for eyeglasses for indigent local people, and run charitable events and fundraisers such as a duck race and food drives.
Our Local Service
Our local program of charitable services includes over 40 projects per year and over 1,000 volunteer hours. These projects directly help over 5,300 people in our local Upper Valley Community.This year's projects include:

Categories of Available Equipment
For each category below, we usually have multiple items of equipment in stock.
Items are available at no charge, except for purchase of batteries (if needed) or delivery costs.
Your Donations Keep Us Going
Please Pay It Forward!
We are a 501(c)(3) with an all-volunteer team, so we take no salaries from donations - 100% of donations go to the mission of helping people in the Upper Valley. Our biggest constraint is storage space - next is delivery of equipment, then refurbishment (especially batteries and consumables).Your donation is tax-deductible, see our IRS Tax-exempt Charity Determination Letter here.
How much would the equipment have cost you from a store?
Did a Lion donate time and gas to deliver to you for free?
If you didn't have to pay for equipment, or for delivery, please consider donating a fraction of what you saved...
