How does it work?

TechOWL accepts donations of gently-used devices. These are items that the owner no longer needed, but are still in good working condition. All donations are looked over and thoroughly cleaned by our staff. We then give the device to someone in need of it. This saves you money and keeps equipment out of landfills!

Items accepted at this site include: manual wheelchairs and mobility devices, portable magnification devices, augmentative communication devices, and other aids for daily living. We can NOT accept powerchairs, stair lifts, or hospital beds at this site. Our program also does NOT distribute medical equipment related to oxygen or dialysis.
