The next time you clean out your attic or basement, consider donating some of your used belongings to a good cause. INDATA is currently accepting second-hand assistive technology (AT) for our equipment reutilization program. Donated AT is sanitized, repaired, and given to Indiana residents with disabilities in need. This is a free service that prevents waste from going to a landfill, and can really make a difference in someone’s life!
At Easter Seals Crossroads, we strive to improve the lives of people who struggle with daily activities. AT can give them back their independence they need in order to read their mail, stay organized, or fill out a job application. Read the inspiring story of artist Justine Horlander in the AT Connection 2009 Winter Newsletter and learn about how she overcame the issues revolving around her disability.
Examples of reusable AT include: crutches, walkers, computer monitors, canes, wheelchairs, pill organizers, and magnifiers. INDATA does not accept items like hearing aids, which are usually custom made. For more information on what is acceptable for donation, contact Mike Garberg at firstname.lastname@example.org or 317-466-2013.
This equipment reutilization operates under the guidelines provided by the Pass It On Center, a collaboration of AT Reuse programs in the United States.
