Gently Used Equipment

Thank you for viewing the Gently Used Equipment - Helping Hands site. The program is on-going program with the purpose to receive and pass forward donated gently used and/or NEW equipment to schools, Physical Educators, and sites working with children of all ages. It is open to anyone wishing to communicate and connect.

 

This opportunity is possible through communication, networking and working together to transport. Please keep in mind, all items passed forward should be in safe working condition, as I count on you to make that decision.

 

CONTACT: Kathy Houston (kathyhouston@hotmail.com) - Physical Education/Health Teacher in Queen Bee District 16

 

IF you have items to donate ~  IF you see items you want ~  IF you would like to post to the wish list ~ PLEASE send me an email with the specific information AS WELL AS YOUR EMAIL AND PHONE NUMBER.  We will communicate as to the specifics for drop off or pick up. PLEASE NOTE that drop off and pick up location is Winfield, Illinois - unless specifics are able to be worked out between us for an alternative plan.

 

SOME equipment comes and goes quickly - please understand,  I will reply ASAP upon receiving your email.  I check emails from HOME computer ONLY - NOT MY PHONE or at work. It is a first come first serve basis on the communication  I receive. At times, larger items, I may put you directly in contact with the teacher that has the items for you to work on transport and pick up. Missing out on an item does not mean that we will never get another one. No promises, however, we hope we can work together to find treasures to receive and pass forward.

 

Please know that items passed forward are your responsibility upon pick-up as to set-up, care and use.

 

PICK UP TIMELINE OF AN ITEM THAT YOU AGREE TO IS 7 DAYS - If that is a concern, just communicate with me - we can work together on plans and transport.
