Medical Equipment Loan Closet

The Medical Equipment Loan Closet is a volunteer-run organization that loans medical equipment to those in need.  We loan wheelchairs, crutches, bedside toilets, walkers, hospital beds and various other durable medical equipment.


Borrowing from the Loan Closet

Items are loaned at no cost for a period of six months, which can be extended upon request.  All equipment should be returned in good condition.

Items may be picked up at the Lutheran Church of the Nativity, on the corner of Airport Road and Hendersonville Road, in southern Buncombe County.  Pick up of equipment is on an appointment-only basis.  

Please call (828) 684-0352 and leave a detailed message on extension 116 or email Pastor Rachel Hoffman at  Let us know the type of equipment needed, when equipment is needed, and the best way to contact you (by phone or email).  Messages are checked daily and calls or emails will be returned within two days.
