The Orcas Island Lions Club has partnered with the Orcas Senior Advisory Committee to provide a free loan program of Mobility Assistance Equipment to Orcas residents who require these devices. This includes items such as canes, walkers, wheelchairs, and electric powered wheelchairs and scooters. A more complete list of equipment will be found …..

Staffed by volunteers from the Orcas Lions Club, we provide good used equipment that has either been donated to the Senior Center or loaned to us by our sister club, the Bellingham Central Lions Club which operates the Wheelchair Warehouse in Bellingham, The equipment is available to Orcas Island residents of all ages who require it and it is loaned at no cost to the recipient for as long as it is required. We operate from the Multi-Purpose Room at the Orcas Senior Center.

Hours of Operation

The Orcas Lions Club Volunteers are at the Senior Center every Wednesday and Friday from 1000-1100. We ask that those needing to borrow equipment visit during those hours. In that way we can endeavor to provide the most appropriate equipment for your situation. For those who have an urgent need or cannot get to the Senior Center during these periods, the Senior Center’s Receptionist Volunteers have access to the equipment.

Note that power wheelchairs and scooters are only available by pre-arrangement with the Orcas Lions Club. An application for this type of equipment will be found by clicking on this link:
