HOUSE IN THE WOODS
WISH LIST

THANK YOU for your interest in supporting House in the Woods and the American Heroes we serve.

Many individuals have indicated a willingness to support the mission by way of purchasing things needed at the lodge, 

or for particular retreats planned. 

Here you'll find a list of a few of the items on our Wish List which will improve the experience for our military men and women, and also the program as a whole. 

With your help we can continue offering healing retreats to the men and women 

that have served and sacrificed so much for our freedom!

Perhaps you have contacts who may be able to assist, are willing to organize a fundraiser, or simply can spread the word. We appreciate any and all willingness to support our organization with the greater mission in mind - HELPING SAVE LIVES.

If you have any questions please reach out to us!

THANK YOU for your continued support.

As you can imagine, the demand is high for non-perishable items at the House in the Woods lodge hosting roughly 250 attendees annually, in addition to community events. Please take a look at the link here to see our regularly used non-perishable items.  The ship to address is build into the wish list. Every donation regardless of size, is making it possible to provide these healing opportunities for our veterans.  

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.

WINCH
 

We are often in need of a  winch to remove large animals from the woods.

HONDA GENERATOR

With the influx of volunteers and attendees staying in campers, rv's, etc there's an increase need of portable generators.  In the future we will likely be attending off-site retreats that do not offer electricity.

THERMAL SCOPE

We were introduced to thermal rifle scopes through another organization and have come to the realization that having a thermal scope on hand for night time tracking purposes would be very helpful.

 

When we have veterans on hunts we are often out at night tracking bear, moose, deer, etc. and now that we know their capability it would take the success and safety rate to a whole new level. 

Additionally, we may have the opportunity to add nighttime retreats in the future and this would be a necessity for those types of events.

We are reaching out to manufacturers directly as well in pursuit of a donation.

COTS
to use in Wall Tent

We are blessed to have 1 conex box, which we use to store bear bait. 

We have been blessed with equipment for many types of outdoor activities at the lodge, which means we also need to store it all safely. 

Another conex box would be ideal as we can build shelving inside and keep things safe and dry.  

The last thing we want is to have equipment damaged because of improper storage. 

Perhaps you know a company who may be willing to make a donation to our organization. If so, please share further information.  

Thank you!

Pole Building
Garage

We are blessed to have a growing list of equipment for use on our veteran retreats, which also requires good quality storage to ensure that this equipment stays in the best condition possible.

A metal garage-type building seems to be the most cost-effective option at this time.  

Perhaps you know a company that may be willing to assist with providing an estimate, or perhaps even consider cost-sharing. If so, please share further information.  

Thank you!

TRACTOR
 

Having a lodge also means a lot of heavy lifting. Whether it's yard work, building, cleaning up bait sites, or new land development, we've come to the point of needing a tractor for regular use. 

A Mahindra isn't a necessity, we're simply looking or something with roughly 80 HP and in good working condition.

PERFORMANCE AND POWER AT THE RIGHT PRICE 7000 series utility tractors are as powerful as they are affordable. These value-packed machines are designed to conquer even the toughest tasks, offering a new hydraulic system with best-in-class 5,730 lbs. of 3-point lift capacity. If you’re in the market for a utility tractor that provides exceptional performance without any of the costly bells and whistles, look no further than the 7000 series

Industrial Popcorn Popper
 

With the cost of bear bait increasing by the day. we're reviewing options to help increase the amount of bear bait we have on hand, while also making ourselves more self sufficient.

Hey, we'll be set up for a great movie night too! :)  This is just one option, there are others in this series but it gives you an idea.

We use popcorn and nuts in our bear bait.

Pavement Project
around the lodge

In order to make the lodge as accessible to our guests, as well as handicapped visitors we are looking at options for paving the parking area surrounding the lodge. 

In addition to this, pavement would keep the lodge cleaner as well as making maintenance easier and more efficient.

 

Perhaps you know a company that may be willing to assist with providing an estimate, or perhaps even consider cost-sharing. If so, please share further information.  

Thank you!
