OCCK and its Solution Outreach Center have scheduled the second annual Durable Medical Equipment Recycling Week.

The collection event is scheduled to begin Monday and last until May 11.

OCCK urgently needs hospital beds, scooters, bedside commodes, bath transfer benches, walkers, and patient lifts. All donations will be sanitized and repurposed for children and adults with mobility needs.
