Red Cross - Health Equipment Loan Program
The Canadian Red Cross currently has an urgent need for volunteers to support their Health Equipment Loan Program (HELP). The Health Equipment Loan Program lends out health equipment such as wheelchairs or walkers, free of charge, to patients for up to six months. They are currently seeking Client Service Volunteers who would process referral forms and loan out the medical equipment from their depot in Vernon.
