St. John’s asks for supply donations during global shortage

JACKSON, Wyo. — Due to ongoing global medical equipment supply shortages, St. John’s Health has asked the community to donate their gently used crutches to make up for their low supply.

“If you happen to have a pair you’re no longer using, please consider donating them to help your neighbors move and recover in comfort,” said St. John’s this afternoon.

St. John’s is specifically looking for gently used adult aluminum crutches in both regular and tall sizes.

Donations can be dropped off Monday through Friday, at the main front desk at St. John’s from 7:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m.,

All crutches will be cleaned, disinfected and inspected prior to being given to patients.
