Background
The Loan Locker is a local source for durable medical equipment to meet a growing need for those in the community who are experiencing a temporary or permanent disability.   

The Loan Locker, which was initiated by local residents, will make items such as wheelchairs, walkers, canes, knee scooters, and bed rails available free of charge to those in need.  The program will be coordinated by community volunteers in consultation with the Aging and Disability Commission.  Medical equipment will be collected through donations, and will be inspected by a licensed physical therapist.

The Loan Locker was approved by the Board of Selectmen in April and will officially launch on December 1, 2019.
