Help support Mae's Closet, a medical equipment lending bank located in Hamden, Connecticut. We provide safe, clean and FREE medical equipment to people who need it, when they need it.

The Closet is open weekdays from 1 to 4 p.m., and also receives and responds to phone calls from 9 a.m. to noon. We are looking for volunteers with weekday availability, and the ability to visit the Closet in Hamden to help distribute equipment. We will teach you what you need to know.
