Woman’s Missionary Union of Texas is collecting donated durable medical equipment this week to be distributed by missions partners in Havana, Cuba.
Texas WMU is accepting walkers, wheelchairs, crutches and canes for Cuba at six sites throughout Texas.
Wheelchairs must have all parts, including footrests. Make sure the footrests are with the wheelchair when it is dropped off at a donation site.
Floor tips for walkers and canes must be in good condition. Replace any excessively worn tips before the items are donated.
