Equipment Donation Drive!

Please share this information far and wide!

We’d love your help printing and distributing the Donation Drive Flyer (click  here) to churches, assisted living places, nursing homes, thrift stores, etc. Your help in getting the word out will make a huge difference in the amount of equipment provided to those who can’t afford it any other way.

Take the time to clean out your closets and garage! If you're not using or have outgrown equipment, there’s a good chance it would be useful to another person. Declutter your life and help others.

The South Carolina Assistive Technology Program (SCATP) and the Disability Action Center (DAC) are sponsoring an Equipment Donation Drive, in collaboration with the statewide SC Assistive Technology Expo on March 27, 2013 at Brookland Conference Center, West Columbia. See more information at

If you’re planning to bring equipment or have questions about the Equipment Donation Drive, contact:

Janet Jendron 
(803)935-5273 or

Kimberly Tissot 
(803)779-5121 or

We may arrange to pick up your equipment before the conference. If you are bringing equipment the day of the conference and you're attending the Expo, you can bring it directly to the Conference Center. If you aren't attending the conference, please call one of the numbers above and we can arrange pick up. If requested, donations can be tax deductible.
