Utah hospitals and clinics are in need of gently used aluminum crutches, canes, walkers, and wheelchairs. Please donate today!

A global shortage of aluminum means that crutches, canes, and walkers are in short supply for most hospitals. Imagine trying to get around after hip surgery or after breaking your leg without the aid of these devices.

If you have gently used aluminum crutches, a cane, a walker, or even a wheelchair, sitting around in a closet or your garage, please donate them by dropping them off at one of the following drop-off sites during the specified dates and times. All donations will be inspected for safety and sanitized, then distributed to patients who need them.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's causing the shortage of these medical supplies?

Like so many other issues caused by the Pandemic, there is a global shortage of aluminum used to make these supplies. Hospitals' current inventories are running very low and there just simply aren't devices available from the vendors who usually sell these devices.

What is meant by gently used?

We are needing devices that are in good shape and in good working order so that they will be safe for patients to use. All donated equipment will be assessed to make sure it is safe before it is donated to a patient.

Can I donate wooden crutches?

No. Unfortunately, there are no good methods of sanitizing wood products, so that is why we are focused on aluminum.

Will patients be charged for these donated items?

No. These will be furnished free of charge to patients.

Can I get a tax deduction if I donate items?

Click here to be directed to the Non-Cash Donation Tax Receipt form, and then consult with your tax advisor regarding the tax deductibility of the items you donate. Be sure to keep a copy of the form for your records. If you’d like to return this form to Intermountain Foundation – by emailing Foundation@imail.org or by mailing form to 36 South State Street, Salt Lake City, UT, 84111– we will be happy to follow up with a letter acknowledging your generosity.

I don't have anything to donate. Are there other ways I can help?

Yes. We are in need of volunteers who can help sort/sanitize the items that are donated. You can sign up to volunteer through Just Serve by clicking on this link. If you have not used Just Serve before, you will need to first create an account.

Do you accept knee scooters?

Yes, we accept knee scooters. Donated scooters will be sanitized and donated to patients in need, free of charge.
