THE GREEN PROGRAM

"Giving Recycled/Reusable Equipment for Everyday Needs"

The New Horizons GREEN program is always open to donations of durable medical equipment, assistive devices, and medical supplies. Your donations are tax deductible! We are in need of donations now, as we were able to provide many with needed equipment in the local shelters for Harvey evacuees.

If you are in need of durable medical equipment, assistive devices, or medical supplies, please call Jay Cochran at 318-671-8131 or 1-877-219-7327. We are happy to give you what has been donated to us. You may use our GREEN program for temporary or permanent needs.
