The places and people we serve are priceless....
but the gear isn't.
We know how to respond to disasters. We know how to coordinate and engage volunteers. We know how to conserve our natural resources. And we know how to build the capacity of our partners in the community. More often than not, these assignments call for resources, many of which need to be replaced or replenished on an annual basis.
Below is a list of specific needs. We always welcome new ideas on gifts that can make a difference. Check out our Amazon WishList if you'd like to purchase and send a gift to us online. Additionally, we greatly appreciate Frequent Flyer Miles and Hotel Points that could be used for disaster responses. Every gift ensures that Members can continue to provide excellent and safe service.
