The Society For Lending Comforts To The Sick
Of The Town Of Smithtown
71 Blydenburgh Avenue, Smithtown, NY 11787
Serving Smithtown Township Since 1906

The Society for Lending Comforts to the Sick is a group of Smithtown residents which seeks to comfort our community’s infirm and ailing.  Since 1906, we have loaned hospital and recuperative equipment free-of-charge to anyone living in the Township of Smithtown.

We warehouse all manner of recuperative equipment, everything from wheelchairs to walkers to commodes. anything the patient might need to make their home-care more comfortable. 

You can have the equipment you need immediately -- no need to wait for Medicare!

Simply stop by during our Lending Hours Mon.-Fri. Evenings 6-8pm, and  Sat. 9-12 noon.  We are happy to serve you.

The members of the Society's Board of Directors and volunteers maintain the operating of the Thrift Shop every week throughout the year, from which Lending Comforts realizes a great deal of funds through our Friends and Thrift Shop supporters.

The Thrift Shop is open Tues. & Fri. from 10 am to 2 pm all year long. Your tax deductible donations of new and gently used clothing and household items will be gratefully accepted during  Thrift Shop hours. The Thrift Shop is located in the rear of the Lending Comforts building Please do not leave any donations outside of the building when the thrift Shop is not open.

Lending Comforts sends out a "Friends Letter" appeal once a year for additional donations to maintain the Loaning Closet and purchase of new equipment.

After purchase of new equipment and the cost of upkeep for Lending Comforts, any additional funds are donated to other charitable organizations in Sithtown Township to further impact our community.
