starting a wish list


at the top of the wish list is a cube van, something like this one, for picking up donated material for the ReStore. it's also an amazing moving billboard. also on the wish list are things like a forklift, pallet jacks, moving dollies, industrial shelving, and lots of high energy volunteers.

got the word from the local landfill administrator today that they're giving us a location with 3 reasonably good buildings, on trial, for a year - RENT AND UTILITIES FREE!!!! does it get any better than that? i can probably start setting up my office next week.

we do the dance of joy!!

Joy dancing with you! Great to have a rent free facility AND utilities too boot. Can't get much better than that! ... well possibly the gifting of some of those much needed items.

That's wonderful news about the space being made available for you. I'm sure the rest will come. After all, what could you have done with a fork lift and pallet jack with no dry place to keep them? I wish you all the very best.
