Second hand wheelchair?

#1

I have a friend who has recently needed a wheelchair (there is a bunch of other not-good stuff going on in their life, but it’s not really germane to the issue at hand). The problem is that they can’t afford to buy a wheelchair. They are currently getting by on a borrowed one, but will eventually need their own. Does anyone know where I could find a secondhand wheelchair for cheap? Or have one of their own that they are willing to sell/give away?

Check out “buy nothing” groups on Fb, I know the farmers branch one is very active and usually has success with requests like these

Unfortunately, that won’t work, since a) they’re in Ft. Worth, and b) are homeless. My googling didn’t find anything equivalent in Tarrant County, but do you know of one that i missed?

Knights of Pythias sounded like a possibility
