The Illinois Valley Center for Independent Living has an equipment loan closet that accepts donations of clean and used equipment such as walkers, canes, commodes and wheelchairs.
While loans are free, some equipment valued more than $ 100 requires a $ 100 cash security deposit, which will be reimbursed upon return if the equipment does not show damage and/or wear and tear.
Such equipment must be brought in periodically for IVCIL staff inspection; some equipment can be loaned only for a specified time period.
Call 815-224-3126 weekdays during normal business hours for additional information.
The Illinois Valley Center for Independent Living, 18 Gunia Drive, La Salle, is a nonprofit agency that helps people with disabilities to live independently in Bureau, La Salle, Marshall, Putnam and Stark counties.
