We Couldn't Have Done It Without You, Vashon!
Thanks to the wonderful generosity of the Vashon Community, the Barns are up-- and currently being customized for the Care Closet's storage needs. Stay tuned for a slideshow of the construction and final result as soon as they're finished.
An oxygen concentrator is delivered at 2 in the morning in response to an urgent call from a hospice caregiver.
A hospital bed is loaned to a family to use for a parent who is home from the hospital.
The Covid-19 pandemic and its economic repercussions are increasing the need for the medical equipment and supplies the Vashon Care Network Care Closet provides free of charge to Vashon islanders.
Last year the Care Closet delivered over 1500 items to 1200 islanders. This year we're closer to 1800 items and more people are utilizing our all-volunteer free service as they cope with this difficult time we're in.
Our inventory is increased by donations of equipment that island families & individuals no longer need and by purchasing inventory that is required to meet specific needs, We are currently in the process of customizing the two barns which are now erected on the south side of the Lutheran Church building. We'll finally be able to collect all the items in our inventory in a central location! Thank you, Vashon!
