wish list items
Habitat for Humanity Lakeside
Items on our Wish List support one or all areas of organizational operation including ReStore, Construction, Family Services, Volunteer Services and general operation of our business office. When you purchase an item off of our Wish List, you are allowing us to use more of our other revenue sources towards our housing programs. If you have any questions about our Wish List, please reach out to Kendra Kelling, our Development Director, at 920-458-3399 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Top Wish List items right now include:
Our ReStore team is always on the move! Help make moving furniture and large items around safer and easier by donating a hand truck for hauling. Hand Truck Link
Speaker System for the ReStore
Background music increases sales, which support our mission, and our speaker system is outdated and failing. This style has worked well in the past. Speaker System Link
Rugs can take up a lot of space on the retail floor in the ReStore. Help us organize and display rugs with a hanging rug rack. Brand does not matter, and the display does not need to be large. Example Display
Disposable Plastic Cutlery and Paper Products
Forks, spoons, knives, plates, cups, and napkins are always needed for volunteer breakrooms and for events like Home Dedication Ceremonies.
Heated Seat Cover
Our ReStore box truck gets chilly during winter pickups. Help keep our Donation Ambassador warm while picking up donations in the winter. Link to Seat Cover
Beverages and Snacks for Volunteers
We keep our volunteers hydrated and energized to ensure that they can do their jobs safely and to let them know they are valued and appreciated. Needs include Gatorade, Powerade, Keurig K cups, and individually wrapped snacks of various kinds.
We would like to improve safety and ease of entry and exit by adding running boards to our 2018 Chevy 2500 4WD Crew Cab Construction Truck. New or used would be greatly appreciated.
Our ReStore needs paper towel rolls to refill the restrooms, for volunteers to use in the testing area, and for both staff and volunteers in break areas. Explore here for a link to the style that fits our dispensers.
Raffle Baskets or Items
We have several upcoming fundraiser events and are looking for donations that will be raffled off as prizes to help us raise more funds to support our mission.
Pricing Guns (1-3 needed)
Our ReStore is in need of a few new pricing guns. Shop here to see the specific pricing guns that we are looking for that can be purchased off Amazon.
Shop Lights (2-4 needed)
We are looking to add additional lighting in our ReStore testing area for our volunteers to utilize as they test donated product before items go out on our sales floor. Go here for a direct link to the lights we are looking to get.
These are used on our construction sites and in our donation drop-off at the ReStore to keep warm during the winter.
