A Red Deer organization that lends medical equipment at no cost will move locations.
The Lending Cupboard wants to move into a new location at 7803 50 Ave., across the street from the Rona, by August.
The organization is hoping to take possession of the space in June and begin renovations to make it comfortable and functional with plenty of room to grow.
The new location, which features more than 6,200 square-feet of space, will be about double the size of the current location near the hospital.
With the move, the organization is launching a campaign to raise $500,000.
“The move itself comes with costs, of course, and doubling our size also involved increased operational costs. To that end, we will be counting on our generous community’s support as always,” a Lending Cupboard press release said.
The Lending Cupboard serves a number of communities across Central Alberta.
