What is HERO?
HERO stands for Healthcare Equipment Recycling Organization. We do healthcare supplies. Affordably. HERO collects and distributes donated healthcare equipment and supplies at low or no cost to benefit those in need locally and globally. Our mission is to provide access to affordable healthcare equipment and supplies for all, through the collection and distribution of donated materials. HERO was founded by local operating room nurses in 1996. It was granted 501(c)3 nonprofit status in 2000 and became the first medical surplus recovery organization in the nation to establish a retail store in 2003. HERO serves all age demographics and income levels locally, regionally, and globally.
What kinds of resources and services does HERO provide?
HERO offers low cost medical equipment and supplies in our retail store located in South Fargo. Walkers, wheelchairs, crutches, shower chairs, hospital beds, incontinence supplies, wound care supplies, rehab supplies, and much more. All are welcome to shop at HERO. We serve individuals at any income level and even offer waived fees for those dealing with financial hardship. 1 in 3 who walk through our door at HERO receive their items for free. HERO also offers medical supplies to mission teams traveling all over the world. We help provide them with the resources they need to perform life changing surgeries and procedures to those who otherwise would not be able to afford them.
How is HERO making an impact? Locally? Globally? Environmentally?
HERO is proud of our growing statistics because each year we are serving more individuals locally and globally as well as saving thousands of pounds of material from landfills.
