The first drive for donations was held on a very hot summer day. Volunteers were situated in many places, often parking lots of stores or municipalities, to receive items. Ms. Cannon had no idea how well this drive would be but arranged for volunteers to staff the locations and having trucks on site to receive the donations. The response was overwhelming! People coming with donations were pleased to be able to contribute to others in need of the equipment that they no longer using. Much of the equipment was practically new. Along with the supplies many made small donations to St. Louis Health. This program was the dream of Laura Cannon who spearheaded the birth of this great charity. She continues her dedication and energy with no limitations. This program assists individuals and has helped direct much of the large equipment donated to areas at home and abroad (even arranging for technicians to go to the locations to instruct users). This is the heart of a wonderful charity and
