The Medical Lending Closet is a service ministry of Park Ridge Community Church. Staffed solely by volunteers, the Closet provides a loan of medical equipment on a short-term, no fee basis to anyone in need in the greater community.
Some of the popular items available for loan: walkers, wheelchairs, bath chairs, raised toilet seats, crutches, transfer benches, sock aids, grabbers, deluxe walkers, commodes and more.
Equipment is loaned for up to three months (with the possibility of an extension). Loans are not meant to be permanent arrangements.
Hours: Monday - Friday 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM
The Medical Lending Closet is located in the lower level of the church. Please call ahead so we can make sure we have the item you need. An appointment is not required. The Lending Closet office number is 847-823-3164, extension 20.
Picking up equipment: Park in the Church parking lot just south of the church. After you exit your car, you will see a door immediately across Butler place.The door bell there rings in the Medical Lending Closet office. Ring that bell and someone will be with you shortly. When picking up or returning larger items, you can use the pull-in space adjacent to the canopied door.
