The Lending Cupboard in Red Deer changes hours for holiday season

In order to make sure that clients can pick up any needed medical equipment prior to the Christmas season, staff at The Lending Cupboard have announced new hours of operation for over the holidays.

“This year, we at The Lending Cupboard really feel that it’s important to allow our staff to spend time with their families over the holiday season. Because of that, and because Christmas falls over a weekend, we’ve decided that we will be closed between Christmas and New Year’s this year,” said Dawna Morey, executive director.

“We want residents to be prepared so that if they are going to have surgeries, they can come in and see us before we leave on the 24th of December at 2 p.m.,” she said.

The Lending Cupboard will re-open for regular hours on Jan. 3.

Morey emphasized even with the holiday hours, there is no need for anyone to be concerned about accessing equipment in the event of an emergency.

“We all have emergencies in our lives, and in the case of emergencies people can still call us, and those calls will be monitored for emergencies only,” she said, adding they can call the regular office number at 403-356-1678.

“In those cases, we will be here to provide equipment.”
