Wish List

  • Reel lawnmowers – young people (14 – 17) willing to mow but State Law does not allow minors to operate lawnmowers.  Wishing for 5 – a team of 5 teens can change a yard quickly!  785-5340, ext. 33
  • Microwaves, toaster ovens,  small refrigerator, cots – near homeless (usually means adults who have moved back in to family home and conditions very crowded…..often change from relative to relative daily) are helping Salem Housing  keep a vacant house safe from vandalism and preparing it  for new residents by prep and paint a room at a time. Heat and water on but since they are "living in" on a temporary basis and moving with from house to house, we often need  additional "home" equipment.  
    785-5340, ext. 21.
  • Rototiller (or person who would till  lots this spring)…willing to accept a set number of lots from many persons and Flint Urban Gardening and Salem Housing will schedule and organize this to use your time well.  785-5340, ext. 33 or 27
  • Friend with a chainsaw – trim trees, cut up dead trees.  785-5340, ext. 33
