Hi! This page is obsolete, but we kept it anyways. You likely ended up here from Google somehow.
(Editor’s Note: We continue to operate a device exchange program, but I do not know the date of the next event. Stay tuned!)
The STAR Center’s Pass It On Event is a showcase of used assistive equipment for donations to and from the community. This event is open to the public and will be hosted in the STAR Center Auditorium.
Pass it on is funded by the Tennessee Technology Access Project (TTAP).
What kinds of equipment?
Examples of equipment that may be available or can be donated includes but is not limited to:
Daily Living Aids: Shower chairs, patient lifts, grab bars, bed tables, bending utensils.
Mobility Aids: Wheelchairs (manual and power), walkers, canes, scooters, wheelchair ramps.
Vision Equipment: Magnifiers, eye glasses, solar sunglasses, large print items, talking devices.
Technology*: Computers, laptops, adaptive mice and keyboards, hearing aids, speech devices.
* Computers and laptops donated should be manufactured after 2007, preferably after 2009. Flat panel monitors only.
If you have equipment that you no longer use, we will pass it on to a person in need. Your donations will help a person with a disability achieve independence and help families who cannot afford equipment.
Donated equipment will be cleaned and refurbished if needed and made available year-round for pickup.
If you or a person you know has a disability and is in need of equipment, we will pass it on to you. Simply stop by, browse, quickly fill out a form, pick up the equipment, and take it home.
The equipment can also be acquired by businesses for people in need, such as at nursing homes. All equipment is provided free of charge for those in need. Donations are welcome.
The address for the event is 1119 Old Humboldt Road, Jackson, TN. Our facility is located across the US 45 Bypass from the Jackson Bowling and Skating Family Fun Center, past Pope Elementary School.
