PACE maintains an Equipment Loan Closet for our membership. Members with disabilities who want to try out and borrow adaptive equipment. That way you can use some items before you purchase them and be sure they fit your needs. If PACE does not have the equipment you request, PACE staff will assist you in your search to purchase or borrow the equipment you need. This is a 30 day loan and you are responsible for returning the equipment when that time is up or calling to renew the loan another 30 days. We will do that up to 90 days. During that time you need may subside or you will have located a funding source and vendor to make a purchase of the equipment. Membership is $15 for one year.
There are no loan charges but donations are greatly appreciated.
DONATION OF EQUIPMENT: If you would like to donate equipment you have used and no longer need, please call PACE. Once you tell us what you have we can decide if it is a piece of equipment we can store and loan out to others. Please bring donations in clean and in working order. Thank you.
