Emergency Medical Loan Closet (MLC)
Etowah United Methodist Church operates a medical loan closet. The mission of our medical loan closet outreach ministry is "durable medical equipment designed to aid a person's mobility and assist in their maintenance of personal hygiene and sanitary conditions, during periods of shorter term illness and recovery and periods of longer term disability". The MLC's inventory includes a large variety of durable medical equipment that is made available by loan to anyone in need for as long as they need it. The team that operates the MLC is made up of trained Etowah UMC members. Requests for medical equipment loans are generally received through the church office and relayed to a member of the team for handling.
