A full listing of items available—from tubing and bags to formula to durable items—is posted on the Oley Web site. This list is updated every Monday, so check frequently. If you see something you need, contact Oley volunteers, Tammi & Robert Stillion at Oleyequipment@aol.com, or call toll-free, (866) 454-7351 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. EST. When emailing a request, be sure to let them know which item you are requesting and give a reference/reorder number if it’s available.
If you don’t find what you are looking for, you can put in a request for the item, and the Stillions will contact you if it becomes available.
To donate items, please contact Oley volunteers, Tammi & Robert Stillion at Oleyequipment@aol.com, or call toll-free, (866) 454-7351 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. EST. They will need your contact information as well as a list of the products you are donating, including expiration dates and reference numbers. Please include all the details requested on the form.
Donated items will be listed on the Oley website for three months (without the donor’s name, etc.). We ask donors to hold onto the items for the entire three months, OR until they are requested through the equipment-supply exchange. Donated items will be taken off the list at this time. (Unwanted items may be accepted by your local Humane Society or veterinarian.)
The equipment-supply exchange program cannot accept prescription drugs. The program also no longer accepts smaller, lower cost items such as gloves and gauze, however, you might consider donating them to Doc to Dock, a non-profit organization that provides medical supplies to people in need overseas.
We ask donors to use their common sense before listing items: do you have a reasonable quantity to make it worth the expense and effort of listing and mailing the items?
If you receive or send any of the items, email or call the Stillions. It makes a huge difference in keeping the list as updated as possible.
Keep in Mind:
Oley cannot guarantee the quality of the supplies donated or be responsible for their condition.
It is the responsibility of the person receiving items to contact either UPS (800) 742-5877 or Federal Express (800) 463-3339 to arrange and pay for shipment of the donated items. Each case of enteral formula weighs about #17 lbs. and may cost $20/case to ship, depending on the distance.
Please notify the Stillions if you do not end up taking the items they have referred you to so they can make them available to other members.

If you don't find what you need you can also be added to the list of requested items. You might also check a similar program the Hovannesian Feeding Foundation, a non profit organization that helps families with children experiencing feeding difficulties or Face book Medical Supply Exchange
If you are looking for a formula that's not available, you might also consider ordering it directly from the company. Depending on the formula, this can save you considerable expense over regular retail prices. Information on the major formula manufacturers is posted at: http://www.oley.org/lifeline/ndtubetalk.html.
You might also consider talking to your doctor or nutritionist to see if you can use a different formula; it may give you more options.
We don't normally get Ostomy supplies donated. If you have or need ostomy supplies please contact either United Ostomy Associations of America who has many chapters (800) 813-4673 or the Osto Group which provides free ostomy supplies to the uninsured for the cost of shipping (877) 678-6690.
Depending on the patient's tolerance for changes in diet, you might consider supplementing with Carnation Instant Breakfast or a homemade, blenderized formula as well. Be sure to discuss this option with your physician/dietitian before trying it.
