CHURCHVILLE, Va. (WHSV)-- Stefanie Bartley is living out her dream of meeting the health needs of her community. Bartley came up with the idea with a friend in college and now it is a reality with the help of area churches.

Churches in Churchville are starting a health equipment loan program where people who need the medical care can loan or borrow medical equipment.

The program will start in September, but there is a way for you to help out. A drive will take place on Jul. 26 to help stock the building with gently-used pieces of medical equipment.

"And so I thought 'wow' what a cool idea to do and so I shared it with my pastor and it's just grown and grown to the point where now it's a four church community collaboration where the four main churches of Churchville are kind of doing this together," said Bartley.

You can find more information on the groups Facebook page. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
