The resumption of some surgical procedures is creating an equipment shortage for a Sturgeon Bay-based charity. Neighbor to Neighbor lends medical gear used by people who are recovering from surgery or convalescing from an illness. Executive Director Ann Bennett says demand for walkers, wheelchairs and other items started just after a moratorium was lifted on elective surgeries. She hopes people will donate any unused equipment as soon as possible.
Anyone with unused wheelchairs, crutches walkers or other medical recovery gear is asked to consider donating them to Neighbor to Neighbor at its website.
