Initiative:
Equipment Loaner Program

Mission:

SMILE Mass has several pieces of equipment for families to borrow and take anywhere with them. Our current inventory includes: 10 floating beach wheelchairs, high performance running strollers, a Hoyer lift, a portable ramp and bath chair.

Details:

The loaner program was started as an extension of the beach wheelchair program.  Once word got out about the beach wheelchairs we were donating to public beaches, people started calling because they vacationed in an area that did not yet have one of the donated chairs.  

To help alleviate that issue, SMILE Mass started a loaner program out of Sudbury, Massachusetts.  Families can borrow adapted equipment to take anywhere for a day, a week or longer.  The loaner program started with a fleet of 6 beach wheelchairs.  When we, again, reached maximum capacity, we added 4 more beach wheelchairs bring our total to 10.  In addition, we have adapted bicycles, jogging strollers, high performance running strollers, a Hoyer lift, a portable ramp and bath chair.  Any of these items can be borrowed to help families enjoy a day of recreation or a vacation away from home with the right amenities.

Special Thanks To Our Sponsors:
“This organization is doing so much for so many families. I used their beach chair loaner program to get down to the beach with my family for the first time in over a decade. I didn’t really realize how much I missed spending time "strolling" at low tide and swimming in the ocean.  There aren’t enough words of gratitude to express how this organization has changed my life.”
