Place to donate knee braces
« on: April 03, 2005, 04:55:20 AM »
Following six different surgeries to my knees, I have accumulated a number of custom and over the counter braces that I would like to donate to a philanthropic cause. I am in the Boston area. Any suggestions? Thank you.

I'd start by contacting either the Veterans' Administration of Vietnam Veterans of America.

Here' a link that might be helpful:

http://www.epa.gov/boston/assistance/reuse/med.html

I'm in New England so I did an internet search under "donate medical supplies"   Lots of places came up..just adjust the search to your grographic area!

GREAT idea!
