It is no secret that medical costs have skyrocketed over the years. The astronomical prices of hospital stays, procedures, and prescriptions are debated in the news almost every day. Agawam Congregational Church, UCC, has come up with a way to help with the cost of one medical expense - medical equipment-through their Lending Cupboard.
The Lending Cupboard is a ministry that provides medical equipment items to members and their families throughout the year. Supplies such as: hospital beds, wheelchairs, canes, walkers, commodes, crutches, transfer boards, bath sets, grabbers, a "scooter", etc., are all available for use at no charge. All one needs to do is call the church office, pick up the equipment, sign out the item, and return it when it is no longer needed.
