Topic: Topic about medical supplies

I have an idea for a new topic on the board.

I have many unused medical supplies that I had for Tom.  Since he has passed on - I do not want to throw out all the supplies.

How about a "Medical Supplies" area where people could post their unused medical supplies - either for free or to sell them - Since many insurance companies may not allow or limit the amount a person can get in a month...people may be willing to purchase them through a private party at little or no cost.

I have tons of gauze pads, tegaderm films, insulin pen needles, insulin syringes, gloves, etc that I could post on such a topic and there may be others that have such things that they either need or want.

Just a thought,
Margaret

Googling "donate medical supplies" brings up a long list of non-profits and charities that seek medical supplies:

Try adding your city or state to the search keywords. Chances are you will be able to find a local organization that seeks donations.

PLC:  None would be 'medications' just wound supplies, such as gloves, gauze sponges, tegaderm film, needles for insulin pens, lancets, and that type of thing.  All Medications were disposed of.
