Hours of operation at the new location will be:  Monday, Wednesday, Friday 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.

The Red Cross apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause.  They say the new location will help meet the growing needs of the people who rely on the loans of basic medical equipment.

The Canadian Red Cross, Health Equipment Loan program is a volunteer-driven, community-based program that provides free, short-term loans of essential medical equipment that allows people to safely recover at home.  Health care practitioners refer clients and prescribe the appropriate equipment to support client care at home.
