A new program takes and distributes medical equipment

By Page H. Gifford

The Cunningham United Methodist Church is partnering with All Blessings Flow for a new community outreach program. Medical equipment is expensive and many people who have gently used medical equipment in good condition wonder where they can donate it. This program brings together those who want to donate and those in need.

All Blessings Flow (ABF) is a local faith-based non-profit founded to improve the quality of life of families living with disabilities and serious health conditions. ABF’s mission is to provide medical equipment and supplies to those in need and has a mobile unit that helps to pick up and distribute the much-needed items. They serve those in need in Charlottesville, Albemarle, and surrounding counties. Medical equipment, even for a short-term recovery can be costly and ABF helps to reduce those costs, particularly when a family is struggling to care for a loved one.

They take the gently used medical equipment that many people no longer need or want and redistribute it to those who can benefit. Hence all blessings flow comes from “something that once blessed you or your loved one and can now become a blessing for someone else. One blessing becomes another and – all blessings flow.”

Volunteers are always needed for various jobs. John Mann drives the mobile unit and he and others get equipment from a warehouse in Charlottesville. Both he and his wife Kitti are members and volunteers with Cunningham United Methodist Church. He fills one volunteer job but there are many others, including repairing medical equipment such as wheelchairs, rolling walkers, etc., assisting in cleaning equipment, doing inventory, helping clients with requests for medical equipment and supplies, receiving donations, and stocking shelves. They also need strong volunteers to help pick up and deliver larger items such as hospital beds.

The program starts at the beginning of August. For more information Call 434-422-8888 or visit allblessingsflow.org
