AIM Recycling donates $100,000 for the Cancer Assistance Program (CAP) equipment services

American Iron and Medal (AIM) Recycling has donated $100,000 to support the Cancer Assistance Program’s (CAP) equipment loan program. This gift will help CAP provide the essential equipment that patients need to safely manage their treatment at home when released from the hospital following their cancer diagnosis, without added worry or financial stress.

Representatives from AIM Recycling, CAP Board members, staff and volunteers unveiled a plaque installed outside the equipment program entrance in recognition of this gift.

In 2021 the equipment loan program saved CAP clients over $381,000 through FREE loan of over 355 rollators, 104 raised toilet seats, 206 commodes, 138 transport chairs, 126 bed rails, 138 bath chairs, 113 bathtub transfer chairs, and many other pieces of equipment to individuals in our community managing a cancer diagnosis.

We do not receive sustainable government funding and we rely on donations from our community to be able to fund the Cancer Assistance Program and its services. This substantial donation from AIM will help support cancer patients and their families. You never truly realize how expensive these pieces of equipment can be until you need them. We are here to help with that financial burden.” says Executive Director of CAP, Debbie Logel Butler.
