    Anyone know a good place to donate wheelchairs?

    Hi guys,

    I'm in the bay area in California (San Jose) and was curious where I can donate my old wheelchair. Its not a bad wheelchair, lasted me 5 years and has some nice features like the wheels. I don't want to donate to some place that is just going to sell it for parts though because they could probably get a few hundred for the wheels and just scrap the body.

    Thanks

    As Betheny says you need a backup chair, you may never need it but that extra security is worth it.

    As a A/B you had more then one pair of shoes right? It's unfortunate though that our "shoes' costs about 5K each.

    Yea, if the old one is your only extra one then keep it, never know when something might happen to the one you are in. Much better then hoping a place has a decent one for rent. I've broke a frame before on one and had to wait for a replacement, if I'd gotten rid of the previous one I'd been in a hospital chair.
    Most everything I say is
