SCATP has contracted with Walton Options for Independent Living to administer the SC STAR Network as part of the Southeastern Technology Access and Reuse Network (STAR). The goal of this collaboration is to provide South Carolinians and South Carolina's organizations with opportunities to access assistive technology and durable medical equipment through the redistribution of used equipment that has been sanitized, checked for safety, and repaired for appropriate use. Walton Options collects donated equipment from their partner sites and prepares it for redistribution to persons who need the equipment.
Donated items such as wheelchairs, tub benches, hospital beds, hoyer lifts, cctv’s, rolling walkers, lift chairs, cell phones, and specialized assistive technology such as communication boards, amplified hearing devices are all needed to build the equipment supply.
The following is a list of scheduled routes this year. Note: The dates are subject to change, and if you have items to drop off, you should call the location first. Or, call Kathy Pelletier, Walton Options for Independent Living at 1-877-821-8400 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org to get information on where to drop off donations.
