The Donation Center

Share the Care’s recycle/reuse program accepts gently used, clean medical equipment and unopened home health supplies to provide to those in need at no charge. The donation center, located at 162 South Coombs Street in Napa next to Young’s Automotive, is open Monday-Friday, 10:00 am – 3:00 pm.

Inventory frequently changes. Wheelchairs, disposable bed pads, adult underwear/pull-ups, disposable wipes, and seated walkers are in high demand. Please call our main office (707) 492-3198 or email in advance of your visit to clarify if the items are needed or in stock. Depending on volunteer availability, Share the Care may be able to deliver and/or pickup items for homebound seniors only. See the FAQs below for more information.
