Help I need to find a charity that needs beds
Advertisements [?]
I have recently purchased 2600 beds and have old beds that are being replaced to scrap. At the moment I have been setting up disposal for the old beds (mostly old fashioned crank hospital beds - a few older model electric hospital beds) in 60 locations across 6 states (california mostly but also texas, washington, arizona, utah, and idaho)

I have been looking for someone or some organization that can make use of these beds (and has the resources to pick them up - though i may be able to work with the vendor who was going to charge us to dispose of them to deliver them)

there has to be some charity that does hospital type stuff in countries that need beds (mexico?) or even here (N.O. ?)

While i realize GFE....I'm not finding any organizations that are interested - any ideas?
