Special Projects

We occasionally have needs for construction/remodeling materials like lumber, paint, parts, pieces and thing-a-ma-jigs.  Special tools and equipment are sometimes needed to keep up with ongoing repairs.  If you have any of these things you'd like to donate, please contact us to see if we can use it or have room to keep that in stock for a future project.  

We also are building a contact list for tradespeople: carpenters, electricians, arborists, painters, plumbers, HVAC, etc.  If you are skilled in a particular trade and are willing to donate time or materials, please give us a call or send an email so when we could use your services, we can contact you first!
