FSL Kindness Closet

Donate Medical Supplies


What is the Kindness Closet?

FSL’s Kindness Closet is a loan closet based out of Dignity Hospital dedicated to serving uninsured and under-insured individuals in our community.

We understand that access to durable medical equipment and supplies can be a challenge for many, which is why we are here to lend a helping hand. Our mission is to ensure that everyone in need has access to essential medical resources that may otherwise be unaffordable or difficult to find.

The FSL Kindness Closet is a loan closet which provides durable medical equipment and medical supplies for uninsured and under-insured members of our community. It allows access to items that may not be affordable or readily available. Organizations and community members donating durable medical equipment help to ensure the resources available can meet the demand of those in need.

Where is the Kindness Closet?

The Kindness Closet is based out of St. Joseph’s Hospital in Phoenix and partners with other Dignity Hospitals to distribute equipment across the Valley. By providing durable medical equipment and supplies, we strive to bridge the gap between affordability and accessibility. We believe that no one should have to go without essential items that can greatly improve their quality of life.
