MOUNT AIRY LIONS CLUB MEDICAL EQUIPMENT PROGRAM
The Mount
Airy Lions Club maintains one of the largest hospital equipment inventories in District 22W of Lions Clubs International. We will loan out this equipment to those in need in our service area. Our service area is all addresses in the zip code 21771. Borrowing this equipment is always subject to the availability of the inventory that we have on hand when you make your request. The following items are owned by our club:
  • Wheel chairs
  • Walkers
  • Potty chairs
  • Shower chairs
  • Portable electric hospital beds
  • Limited number of canes and crutches

In order to obtain the equipment you wish to borrow, you must call our club's answering service at 301-829-LION and leave your name and a daytime and/or home phone number and the type of equipment you need. Our equipment coordinators will contact you to arrange a date and time for you to pick up the equipment. WE DO NOT DELIVER. Please remember, we are all VOLUNTEERS and there may possibly be some lag time from the time you call until you receive the equipment, so plan ahead!

You will be required to provide photo identification and sign an agreement promising to maintain the equipment in the same condition you received it and return the equipment as soon as the need for its use ends. Note: If you are over 65 and qualify for medicare in most instances medicare will pay for you to rent or purchase this equipment from a medical equipment supplier if it is authorized by your physician. This may also be true of some private insurance providers. Please check with your physician and insurance provider first before calling us so we can keep equipment on hand for those that do not qualify for their insurance company or medicare to provide this equipment.

HOLIDAY FOOD BASKETS is a long traditional program where the club purchases a holiday meal for families in need over Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. In addition annual contributions are also given to local food pantries for them to purchase supplies.
