Community medical closet to open

Staff writer

Dee’s Equipment Closet Etc., a collection of medical equipment within Tampa Hair Salon that members of the public may borrow, will have its ribbon cutting and open house 4:30 p.m. Dec. 5.

The closet was established in memory of Dolores “Dee” Duggan, a volunteer for organizations including the Herington Hospital Auxiliary, Tampa Trail Stop grocery store, Marion County Senior Citizens, and local Red Hat chapter. In 2014, she dedicated the first community little library in Marion County (in her hometown of Tampa) in memory of her husband, Thomas.

The closet includes walkers, canes, bedside commodes, crutches, medical open toed shoes, and braces donated by community members. It will be accepting more at the open house.

A Tampa Christmas celebration will be held immediately afterward at Tampa Senior Center.
