Replacement of Stolen Items
The cost to replace stolen items
On April 15th, 2022 our baseyard located on Piiholo road was broken into and robbed sometime in the night. We arrived at our baseyard to prep for a school volunteer trip to find our tool shed broken into and several storage sheds locks cut and things stolen.
Help us cover the cost of stolen items!
- Items Stolen- Missing are several gas powered tools including Stihl chainsaws and weed eaters, brand new ice chests, and a Honda EU1000 generator.
- We need these items to do our work! - We need a lot of those tools to complete important field work. We use the gas powered tools to help clear fence lines and maintain fences from fallen trees so invasive ungulates can not enter the protected watershed. We use the ice chests and generator for longer operations that require us to camp and the power tools for a multitude of operations in the field and at the baseyard to fix and maintain equipment. We have already looked into replacing some of these items and there are none currently in stock on the island. It will take some time to replace them, which will affect what we are able to do and when.
- We pay in the end - All these items add up and are not covered under insurance. The extra cost for replacing these items comes at an additianal cost to our program and takes time to replace.
Help us by donating to this campaign today to be put in a fund to replacing these items. Each item comes in at a cost on average of about $300 a piece with an average total of about $4,000 in replacement costs.
If you donate $300 or more we will send you an EMWP Mug, Reuseable Straw and "May the Forest Be With You" Bumper Sticker!
