Current Needs and Wish List 11/21/11

We are frequently asked what our current needs are, and sometimes asked what we would wish for if we could have something to make our operations easier.

Here are a few things in both categories. And drop-off locations are listed HERE.

Immediate Needs:

Washers and Dryers (electric)

Bus Passes or Tokens for homeless friends needing transportation.

Fire Extinguishers for our warehouse and vehicles.

Pallet Jack or Forklift

Clothing Racks

Socks (men & women)

Underwear (men & women)

Razors and Shaving Cream

Tents

Sleeping bags

Gloves

Fuel cards

Refrigerators

Deep Freezes

*reminder* We do recycle aluminum cans and scrap metal to help fund our efforts. If you could help us save cans or have any junk metal, that would be an easy and effective way to help drive our ministry!

Wish List:

ATV – We are seeking some type of ATV that would allow us to haul large amounts of supplies through the woods to some of the homeless camps that we serve. This would save us a lot of time and allow us to serve more people.  We can only get our vans/trucks so close to most of the camps, and then haul firewood etc. in by hand.

Box truck – As we continue growing, we receive more and more bulk donations. We are “wishing” for a box truck that would equip us to pick up larger donations and those that come on pallets.

Vans – One of our big missions is to establish more “Vans” in more places. The number of requests for help that we are getting from other geographic areas is increasing. In order to serve these people, we need more vans. If you would like to donate an old (or new) van, or contribute to the purchase of more vans, please let us know!

Happy “Socktober” from Love in Stereo!!

 

A couple weeks ago I got an email from Brad at Love In Stereo.  He said that he had been doing a silly sock give away on his blog, but wanted to turn it into something real…..something that mattered.  He said he wanted to use this silly sock thing to help us stock up on socks.


So he wrote a song.  But not just any song.  A song that you can purchase for a simple $5 and all the proceeds are going to go to stocking our sock supply!  I’m pretty sure this song will now be the “official” theme song for The Van.

Here, let him tell you more about it….

 

How cool is that??  Wanna check out the “music video” of this socksong? Check it…

The Story of “The Van” as Presented to Extreme Makeover Home Edition

Back in April we were contacted by EMHE and asked to complete their application process and to make a video about what we do.  The only catch was that they needed both the very next day.  Now that was a crazy night!

We got everything submitted in time, but unfortunately they later decided not to cast us.  I thought I would go ahead and share the video that we threw together for them.  Enjoy!
