September 11 - September 22
The Unity Campaign is a 12-day fundraiser powered by United Way of the Eastern Panhandle. During the 12 Days of Giving from September 11 - 22, donors can contribute to any of the participating nonprofits to fund programs and services right here in our own community.
The Unity Campaign funds will be used to add a medical storage building so that the lending closet can be reopened to our patients and the community at a totally "free" cost to the recipient.
Since its inception in 2014, "free building space" to house equipment for the Lending Closet has been available. In June 2017 all resources were exhausted for a place to house equipment so PHHI began looking at an option to place a storage building on site.
The Medical Equipment Storage building would allow us to re-open the Lending Closet which benefits our patients being seen and treated by the therapy staff. Our physical therapists assist the patient, family and caregivers in the home setting to achieve maximum independence and often times more than one piece of equipment is needed.
With the addition of a medical equipment storage building, non-profit organizations throughout our service area can refer individuals to PHHI for the loan of necessary medical equipment including wheelchairs, bedside commodes, shower benches, battery-operated wheelchairs, and numerous smaller pieces of equipment enhancing a patient’s quality-of-life.
