South Metro Medical Equipment Loan Closet

A nonprofit organization

Have you ever required specialized medical equipment like a wheelchair for a few weeks/months after an accident or surgery? This equipment is expensive to obtain! SMMELC loans equipment for short time periods. To provide this service at no charge, we need donations for repairs, cleaning and storage


From Melissa: Thank you so much for the loan of the wheelchair. Enclosed {with this note} is a donation. I will certainly pass the word for and to anyone in need of medical equipment. May God Bless you all!! So thankful. Warm Regards

From Debbie: Thanks so much, because of you I am having an excellent recovery! Best

From Mary: Thank you so very much for the use of these medical supplies. They helped me very much, especially the walker. Hopefully, they will help someone else, as it did me.

From Cyndi: Thank you so much for what you do! My Mom, Sylvia, is extremely grateful for the items she is borrowing!

From Donna: Please accept this donation as a small token of my appreciation for the SMMELC. I was able to borrow some equipment after my surgery that helped me so much. Thank you all fro providing this very helpful service.


The South Metro Medical Equipment Loan Closet's purpose is to provide used durable medical equipment to persons age 18 and over who are in need in the south metro area of Denver, CO.

Background Statement

Started in 2016, donations of durable medical equipment have allowed SMMELC to help hundreds of people with a short term loan of specialized equipment such as hospital beds, walkers, wheelchairs, crutches, etc. Our inventory of equipment as well as our client base continue to grow because people don't want to store medical equipment for any longer than they need to use it. And, we want to help keep the usable equipment out of the landfills! This organization is 100% volunteer driven and 100% of the donations go toward the program. Last year we loaned out more than1536 pieces of equipment to more than 700 people.
