After more than 40 years of loaning medical equipment to the community, the Rochester Northside Lions Club asked us to take over the operation of their Medical Equipment Loan Closet. The Greece Ridge Lions were honored to be asked to do so.  Thanks go out to the former members of the Northside Lions Club for all their hard work and dedication for more than 40 years. Thank you for entrusting us to continue what you started. We especially remember Bel and Ellie Swarts.

The Gates Greece Lions currently have available for loan: walkers, crutches, canes, commodes, shower chairs, transfer benches, and wheelchairs.

We do not distribute medical advice or make medical diagnoses; all devices are used at your own risk.

While there is no charge for the use of this equipment, donations are very much appreciated. The Gates Greece Lions Club is a 501(c)4 organization. Contributions are not deductible for federal income tax purposes as charitable contributions, but 100% of the money raised from the public goes back out to the community.  

Please bear in mind when dealing with our personnel that they are volunteers and as such there are time constraints and other commitments, so please try to plan ahead if possible.

We do accept equipment donations as long as the equipment is in good working condition and has been cleaned.


If you wish to make a donation or need to borrow any equipment please call 585-340-7105 and leave a message to request an appointment. The medical loan closet is located at 1299 Long Pond Rd behind the fire hall.

The Fire Department graciously allows us to keep our equipment here; however they are not involved with the process of accepting donations or loaning out the equipment.

Please don’t bother the Fire Department, they have an important job to do!

Thank you for your cooperation.
