ISO: Recommendations on what to do with stair lift no longer needed
For the saddest of reasons, only 2 weeks after having a stair lift installed, it is no longer needed. Any suggestions on what to do with it (the company I purchased it from does not buy them back and didn't really have any good suggestions about what to do), I'm not interested in selling it on an online marketplace.

I thought I would take this occasion to repost the list of organizations and the various types of donated goods and equipment they accept. This list was first posted on the Listserv in an Excel spreadsheet on November 3 -- see Message #194132
-- and then reformatted as a .PDF and reposted on the Listserv on November 10 in Message #194519
If you would prefer to read it in MS Word format, go to https://groups.io/g/clevelandpark/files and scroll down the list of files (in alphabetical order) till you get to "Donations List: Who Accepts What," and click on it to open it in MS Word.
I just looked over the list to see if there's a charitable organization that accepts a stair lift, and here's what I found:
Sarah's Circle 2551 17th St, NW #103 DC, www.sarahscircle.org, (202) 332-1400
Medical equipment, home modification items (chair rails, etc), wheelchairs, walkers

In addition to Iona: https://www.iona.org/get-involved/donate-to-loan-closet/ , you might also try National Rehab Hospital. When folks are discharged, PTs and OTs prescribe this kind of equipment. Could be someone being sent home soon needs this.
