|A Letter of Appeal From Our Own Krystal Woolston|
My name is Krystal Woolston and I currently direct the Bonner Leader AmeriCorps program here at Montclair State University. The Bonner Program is a group of 35-45 students each year that commit to doing 300 hours of community service throughout the academic year. As part of their service, Bonners participate in service trips locally in New Jersey as well as nationally in places like New Orleans and North Carolina when they've been declared natural disasters. Often during those trips, we are asked to rebuild or gut homes, but the tools used to do so are typically whatever has been donated many times lacking the appropriate tools or lacking quality (for example plastic scrapers vs. metal).
We are hoping for your help with this. We have created a wish list on Amazon.com
of all of the tools and supplies we traditionally use on these trips and service days. We want to create a tool supply kit here at MSU that can be brought on these trips and returned so we will always have the tools needed and be able to do quality service for the individuals we're helping. We'd appreciate anything you could do to help us.
If you have difficulty following the link (sometimes if you're not already logged into amazon it will not go straight to our wishlist) you also search wish lists. You would put my email address into the search box and the "Bonner Service List" will pop up. A great part of wish lists is when you purchase from Amazon they will ship the items directly to our office here at MSU so you will not need to deliver it!
Feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
if you have any questions! Again, any support you could offer would be greatly appreciated!
