Red Deer, Alberta – Dec. 3, 2021 – In order to make sure that clients can pick up any needed medical equipment prior to the Christmas season, staff at The Lending Cupboard would like to announce hours of operation for over the holidays.
“This year, we at The Lending Cupboard really feel that it’s important to allow our staff to spend time with their families over the holiday season. Because of that, and because Christmas falls over a weekend, we’ve decided that we will be closed between Christmas and New Year’s this year,” said Dawna Morey, executive director.
“Because of that, we want residents to be prepared so that if they are going to have surgeries, they can come in and see us before we leave on the 24th of December at 2 p.m.,” she said.
The Lending Cupboard will re-open for regular hours on Jan. 3rd.
Morey did emphasize that even with the holiday hours, there is no need for anyone to be concerned about accessing equipment in the event of an emergency.
“We all have emergencies in our lives, and in the case of emergencies people can still call us, and those calls will be monitored for emergencies only,” she said, adding they can call the regular office number of 403-356-1678.
“In those cases, we will be here to provide equipment.”
For inquiries, please feel free to reach out to us.

The Laft Hus celebrates 35 years in Red Deer
The Laft Hus is a replica of an 18th-century farmhouse in the Numedal district in Norway. It was created through the efforts of volunteers, and it officially opened to the public in 1987.
The museum contains many old artifacts and examples of Norwegian arts and crafts and a small butikk of Norwegian items and the house itself is of note due to its traditional sod roof.
The museum and gift shop are open to visitors every day (except Mondays) from June 1 through to August 31, 9:00 am to 3 pm. For the remainder of the year, the Norwegian Laft Hus is open each Wednesday when a group of ladies meet to work on Norwegian arts and crafts.
This year, the Laft Hus celebrates its 35th year in Red Deer. The annual festival will take place on June 18, 2022 and will have many activities, entertainment, Norwegian food and vendors for the visitors to enjoy. Help us celebrate!
