Mission Statement

ReCARES increases access to medical equipment and supplies while reducing unnecessary environmental waste.


Several times a week, in locations throughout the SF Bay Area, volunteers gather to collect a wide variety of medical equipment and supplies. We redistribute these items to people in need during the same open hours.

ReCARES serves a diverse population, many of them are people with disabilities, caregivers, or senior adults who come to find the equipment and supplies to live safely and comfortably in their homes. Most of them are also part of the African-American, Latinx, or immigrant communities who live in the SF Bay Area.

Our excess inventory goes to groups that do overseas charity work.
