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
- 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
- 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.
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
