MERP is a new MonTECH initiative dedicated to improving healthcare and the environment in Montana through the efficient recovery, redistribution or recycling of surplus medical equipment.
MERP accepts donated medical equipment from any organization or individual who no longer needs it. MERP has a comprehensive cleaning and disinfection program in place. Once the equipment has been refurbished and inspected by a qualified professional, MERP then redistributes the equipment to those in need.
The intent of this program is not to supplant the opportunity for any person to receive new medical equipment or supplies. It is to provide access to equipment in any situation, especially in the situation where there may be no or limited resources for an individual. MERP could be a source of needed medical equipment.
- Volunteer Your Time and Talent
The program could not operate without the support of volunteers. MERP is in the process of building a network of partners to help us with the following: storage space, transportation, collecting, cleaning, refurbishing and reissue of equipment, office support.
If you own medical equipment that is no longer needed or used, consider donating it to MERP. Cash donations are vital to continue the service that the program provides.
MERP is able to make only minor repairs, so all donated equipment must be in working condition. Among the items we are able to accept are:
Wheelchairs & Scooters
Canes & Walkers
Bathroom equipment, including: tub benches & shower chairs
Lift chairs & Grab bars
