Letter to the Editor: MS Helping Hands says thanks

Dear Editor:

Especially when grants and funding are hard to come by for our type of services, MS Helping Hands and Donor Closet want to thank our generous continuing contributors, grantors, and various donors. Without them, we would not be able to provide the services we currently do. Since our inception in 1999, we have provided over $430,000 in financial assistance and recycled 200,000 pieces of equipment – and the needs are still rising.

Again a “Gigantic Thanks” to Boeing Employee Fund, Walmart Foundation, The Everett Clinic Foundation, Costco Employee Giving, Multiple Sclerosis Foundation, JP Morgan Chase Employee Giving, and various personal donors.

We provide services and resources for people in Washington State with specific needs that will enhance their quality of life, the ability to stay in their homes, to not feel isolated, have the ability to work, and be able to live healthier lives.

This is achieved by having used and new Durable Medical and Mobility Equipment* available for a suggested minimum donation here at the Donor Closet for anyone when resources are limited. We also provide services for those with Multiple Sclerosis through financial assistance, providing equipment, support groups, and more.

The Donor Closet is currently in need of used Durable Medical and Mobility Equipment. MS Helping Hands is a 501(c) 3 organization so your donations may be tax- deductible. If you would like to help this volunteer organization by donating DME, volunteering your time, making a donation or sponsoring one of their events, please see the information below.

The Donor Closet location is under the IGA Grocer at 409 Howell Way. The Donor Closet it open Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Call 425-712-1807 for more information or visit www.mshelp.org

(*Durable Medical and Mobility Equipment (DME) is considered items for people needing assistance in a home setting after an illness or accident.)
