Tools needed list

Here are some needs for UthBuild. Can you help us out?

1. Stanley 50-gallon mobile tool box (any qty, up to 10)
2. Stanley 15-inch SharpTooth 9 pt handsaw (any qty, up to 15)
3. Irwin 15-inch Pro-Touch Coarse Cut Saw (any qty, up to 15)
4. Exterior corner trowel for stucco (up to 2)
5. Entry doors. Slab or pre-framed (any qty, any condition)
6. Double paned sliding windows, 3’x5′ or smaller (any qty/condition. Nailing tabs preferred)
7. Carpenters pencils

We are scrappers. We can make anything work since we build the simple houses from the ground up. We can accommodate strange window sizes and if doors have been drilled wrong for hinges/locks, then we can make those things work, too. Any basic hand tools will be put to use–we have gotten quite familiar with Vaughn hammers after they partnered with us last year. Nice tools make all the difference regarding safety on the build site–if a student has a crummy hammer or saw then they are in much more danger than if they have a quality tool.

We are a registered 501(c)3 non-profit and can provide a tax-receipt for all donations.

We can’t give a receipt for goods sold to us at wholesale prices, but that’s a good way for the company to come out whole on a product. That’s what we did with Vaughn–employee pricing is half of what we can buy for in the store.

Exploring new ways for finding funds. Any ideas?

I would like to raise $15,000 per year to cover expenses for three homes each year. We have seen this money go a lot further lately, with the economy’s downturn. Last March we turned $5,000 into four homes, and we have yet to finish funding our October build.

Expenses for each week, including transportation, insurance, food, etc., amount to about $1,500.

Anybody want to sponsor a home, or become a monthly giver–maybe you have $10 each month that could go towards these projects? 20 people giving at this level builds one home per year. $25 per month by 8 people builds a home in a year. We’ll supply the labor.

Perhaps you’d like to join us? Please talk to people and get their input as well.
