A new face will be lending a helping hand at The Lending Cupboard in Red Deer.

A new face will be lending a helping hand at The Lending Cupboard in Red Deer.

Executive director Chris Goodship will be moving on but says things will stay status quo with May Johnson who will be taking over the reigns.

The Lending Cupboard is a private charity, operated by staff and volunteers, to provide the people of Red Deer and the region with a long list of new or used medical equipment at no cost or qualifying.

The organization sees approximately 600 clients a month and has inventoried roughly 7,000 pieces of equipment to help those in need.

“It will be a smooth transition and May will fit into the culture and heart of The Lending Cupboard,” Goodship said.

“I love this place to death and it will be placed in good hands. We hope it keeps growing and May is excellent.”

Like most non-profit organizations, The Lending Cupboard would not exist without its volunteers.

A crew of volunteers provides an average of 154 hours of free labour per week.
