Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- ReCares in Duluth takes recycled wheelchairs, walkers, canes, bathroom and bedroom toilet assistants, shower and tub chairs, and even hospital beds, and distributes them to people who can't afford them.

Will Burton, who originated ReCares in Duluth, says that there is an overwhelming demand for this equipment and it's always very rewarding to connect those in need with what they need.

"To give someone something that gets them mobile again is so wonderful," says Burton.

Not only does the center provide free medical equipment and supplies to those in need, but the operation recently added free pickup and delivery services.
