Medical Equipment Loans

Fox Valley Hands of Hope provides short-term medical equipment loans for wheelchairs, walkers, canes, commodes, shower benches and tub transfer benches for three months time. This health equipment loan program is available free of charge to anyone in the Fox Valley community, regardless of whether or not you are one of our clients.

To ensure availability of equipment for personal use or place a hold on an item – contact us.

We also accept donations of gently used equipment, in good condition. Please call if you have items you would like to donate so we can determine if we have the capacity. 


IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE WEEK OF APRIL 4-8, 2022 – The Support Center will be closed to the public and Lending Closet services will be briefly suspended. We are getting a new roof and the construction will make it unsafe for staff or the general public to be near the building. If you have pending equipment returns or would like to loan out an item we kindly ask to return or pick-up before or after this time period. Grief clients will be contacted regarding support service format options from their clinicians directly. Thank you for your understanding!

Below are the required guidelines for loaning and donating equipment:

  • Must call ahead at 630.232.2233 and make an appointment to pick up equipment.
  • Pick-up, returns, and donations hours: Monday-Friday by appointment only. Please call to set up your appointment.
  • When you arrive for your scheduled appointment, please come to the front door of the Support Center and ring the door bell located on the righthand side. Someone will come out to assist you!
