Durable Medical Equipment (DME) is a medically necessary device you can use repeatedly. The most common types of DME include items such as wheelchairs, walkers, and canes. Assistive Technology (AT) is any item used to increase, maintain, or improve the functional capabilities of a person with a disability. AT can include, but is not limited to, items such as phones, tablets, hearing amplification products, etc. The Good Use Program gives both DME and AT a second life at no cost to participants. There are no age requirements to participate. Donate or acquire previously used equipment following the guidelines below:
CLASS's Good Use Program Donation Requirements:
- We do not accept donations without a scheduled appointment day and time. All donation drop-offs must be pre-approved by Bekah Nesbitt, Assistive Technology Coordinator.
- All donations must be sanitized and cleaned adequately before drop-off.
- CLASS reserves the right to deny any donations that are not properly cleaned, have an appearance beyond the “gently used” guidelines, or items that appear damaged, require extensive repairs, and/or are deemed unsafe for a new user.
