Providing Medical Equipment to the Hurting
Love Handles is committed to showing love to those in need by deferring medical costs and providing greater comfort in daily living through personal delivery of Durable Medical Equipment (DME), such as: bath benches, canes, commodes, extremity bags, hand-held showers, raised toilet seats, tub transfer benches and walkers. Surplus DME donations are stored at Imago Dei, then we coordinate deliveries with local agencies to directly serve those in need.
Our vision is not only to deliver this equipment, but to provide a meaningful point of connection for those in need. Many of those receiving equipment are shut-in, isolated or lonely. We are often invited in for tea and conversation, so we proactively budget time and seek opportunity to make personal connection and spend time with those we make the deliveries to. Our vision is to embody the love of Christ to those we serve with practical equipment and personal connection.
