Upper Sand Mountain Parish partners with OxyMed
Rev. James “Woody” Woodin, Executive Director of the Upper Sand Mountain Parish is celebrating another ministry with the poor partnership on Sand Mountain! Pictured above with one of the OxyMed staff of the Rainsville Alabama store, you can see two of the medical devices that have been donated to the Parish and now are in the possession of OxyMed along with several other devices.
Thanks to the partnership between Parish donors, the Parish staff and volunteers, and the OxyMed staff, many under-resourced residents of the Upper Sand Mountain Plateau will be able to obtain these much needed but very expensive devises at very little cost.
Pastor Woody encourages anyone who has used medical devices that are no longer needed to not throw them away. Instead, set up collection points where they can be delivered to medical equipment distributors who would be willing to clean, inspect, and then offer them to the under-resourced members of your local community who could not afford them otherwise.
