Medical Equipment Give-Away!

Due to the overwhelming generosity of our residents Helping Hands finds that many items have exceeded our storage capacity.  To reduce the cost of storage and transport of equipment, the Helping Hands program will offer selected items to residents with no expectation of it being returned.  A cash donation of your choice will allow Helping Hands to offset the cost of storage and provide necessary funds to continue our Neighbor Helping Neighbor program.

The following equipment will be offered to residents, Friday the 16th of April, from 10AM to 2PM, and Saturday the 17th of April, 10AM to 2PM at our office located at 1104 Main Street, ½ block from Spanish Springs Town Square:
