ReCARES is a small volunteer-run environmental and community service non-profit organization. We aim to increase access to medical equipment and supplies while reducing unnecessary environmental waste.

We collect donations of clean, gently used medical equipment and supplies, then redistribute them for free to seniors, people with disabilities, and other individuals in need.

Support our mission:


ReCARES serves over 5,000 people a year and distributes more than 10,000 items ranging from wheelchairs to adult incontinence supplies and personal care items throughout the Bay Area. By doing so, we have kept tons of medical waste from going to landfills.

The information above can be found on the official website of ReCARES. For more details about the organization and to find out how you can volunteer, please visit their website:
