UWS – What’s Needed?

As of 12/8/17, Camp United We Stand is in need of:

Funds for operational expenses: honey buckets, garbage pick-up service, electricity, water, and move expenses (truck rentals and dump fees).

Small ticket items:

  • Food (especially milk, protein, and fresh produce).
  • Baby wipes
  • Spare clothes
  • Spare blankets
  • Winter wear
    • Gloves
    • Hats
    • Thick socks
    • Thermal underwear (long johns)
    • Hand & toe warmers

Medium ticket items:

  • Tarps (16×24, 20×30, etc.)
  • Camping tents (It’s not a tent city without them. Typical nylon tents deteriorate, by UV rays from the sun, in 1 to 2 years). The camp maintains 30 camping tent spots. All 30 tents are gradually replaced every couple of years.
    That’s around 15 tents per year. The ideal sizes are:

    • 8×8 (4-person) cabin tents for singles.
    • 10×12 (6-person) cabin tents for doubles/couples.
    • Larger tents for families are requested on a case-by-case basis. (Too many of those lying around invites camp bloat.)

Big ticket items:

  • Portable car port (even just the frames are fine, like when people upgrade to a new one. Don’t throw those old frames out!
    We put tarps over them, and they work great.)
  • Large thick tarps (20×30 or larger)
  • Fencing material (6-foot tall green screening)

As of 4/26/17, Camp United We Stand is in need of:

  • 2 tents for couples (10’x12’)
  • 2 tents for singles (8’x10’)

As of 4/10/17, Camp United We Stand is in need of:

  • Card table/folding table
  • Reading glasses, various strengths
  • White board, markers and erasers
  • Shelving units for donations tent
  • Umbrellas
  • 8’ x 4’ x ¾” plywood sheets
  • ShelterLogic 10’x20’ carport with 2” poles, model #23572
    Please assure that you get the model with 2” poles; there is a similar model with slimmer poles that just doesn’t hold up as well.

Posted 2/5/17:
Camp United We Stand is in need of a 6-7 foot stepladder for use in disassembling and reassembling its large public tents when the camp moves on February 18th

As of 1/8/17, Camp United We Stand is in need of:

  • (4) 10 x 12 Coleman tents (brand specific request) – with appropriately sized tarps
  • (2) 10 x 16 Coleman tents (brand specific request) – with appropriately sized tarps
