October 6, 2021 – Do you have a pair of crutches gathering dust in
your closet? Hospitals throughout the United States are currently experiencing
a shortage on crutches, and Southeast Georgia Health System is no exception.
“If you have a pair of new or gently used adult regular or universal
crutches, we ask that you consider donating them to the Health System,”
says Kyle Culbertson, CMRP, manager, Supply Chain Services, Southeast
Georgia Health System. “The donated crutches will be thoroughly
cleaned and re-donated to patients in need. We hope to collect 50 pairs
of crutches to get us through the next four weeks and, hopefully, through
the national shortage.”
Donations can be dropped off at the
Health System’s Foundation office at 2436 Parkwood Drive in Brunswick, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-4:30
p.m., or the Guest Services desk in Camden. Please call 912-466-3360 with
“As always, we give a huge thank you to our community for their gracious
support,” says Culbertson.
