The Care Service is Now a STLHELP HUB

 

What is a STLHELP HUB? 

To provide better access to STLHELP's services, we are partnering existing organizations. The Care Service is the 2nd, after Abiding Savior Lutheran Church, of what we hope are vibrant partnerships throughout the region to:

1. Provide easy drop off YEAR-ROUND to anyone seeking to help their neighbors through donating used home medical equipment.

2. Enable people in local communities to REQUEST HELP to secure the home medical equipment they need.

The Care Service

Partners with the St. Louis Health Equipment Lending Program (STLHELP)

 

The St. Louis Health Equipment Lending Program (STLHELP) is partnering with The Care Service in St. Charles to provide increased access to STLHELP’s services: collecting, cleaning and refurbishing home medical equipment, and providing it for free to anyone who needs it. The Care Service, located at 4116 McClay Road, St. Charles, is now another place, in addition to warehouses in Olivette and Crystal City and a partnership with Abiding Savior Lutheran Church in Mehlville, for people in the community to not only donate used home medical equipment they no longer need, but it also provides access to STLHELP’s services. People can call to make an appointment to visit the new St. Charles location to request used home medical equipment they need.

“The Care Service is the first STLHELP satellite in St. Charles County,” said Karen Lanter, executive director. “Through working with established and vibrant organizations like The Care Service, STLHELP can better meet the needs of our neighbors.”

Known as a STLHELP HUB, The Care Service location will accept home medical equipment donations on Fridays from 10 am to 2pm by prior appointment by calling (314) 897-4357, ext. 6.

For more than 15 years, STLHELP, a nonprofit, has been collecting, refurbishing and giving away used home medical equipment to anyone who needs it. This work is needed more than ever with high deductibles, bad insurance, no insurance, denials and now even supply-chain shortages prevent people from getting the resources they need to heal.

Abiding Savior, located at 4355 Butler Hill Road, St. Louis, is now another place, in addition to warehouses in Olivette and Crystal City, for people in the community to not only drop off used home medical equipment they no longer need, but it also provides access to STLHELP’s services.

“Abiding Savior Lutheran Church is the first in a number of partnerships STLHELP is working to create throughout the region,” said Karen Lanter, executive director. “Through working with established and vibrant organizations like Abiding Savior Lutheran Church, STLHELP can better meet the needs of our neighbors.”

Known as a STLHELP HUB, Abiding Savior will accept home medical equipment donations on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 9am and Noon by prior appointment by calling (314) 894-9200. Mark and Cheryl Strahm of Abiding Savior, are leading the effort in building top of the mind awareness of the importance of donating used home medical equipment when it is no longer needed to be refurbished, cleaned and reused. This effort is part of a larger health ministry and was funded in part by the Lutheran Foundation of St Louis.

For more than 15 years, STLHELP, a nonprofit, has been collecting, refurbishing and giving away used home medical equipment to anyone who needs it. This work is needed more than ever with high deductibles, bad insurance, no insurance, denials and now even supply-chain shortages prevent people from getting the resources they need to heal.
