The Arizona Southern Baptist Disaster Relief Wish List is an opportunity for individuals and churches across Arizona to participate in providing new and replacing aging equipment used by our teams. These items will help us to bring help, healing and hope to individuals who have been affected by disasters.
Much of this equipment will be found on our Amazon Wish List.
To shop for the items we are requesting, click on the button below and look through our list. Once you find the item(s) you want to provide, simply add it to your cart by clicking the yellow button on the right. If you would like to provide more than one item (if we requested multiples), you can click the “add comment, quantity & priority" text on the right and adjust as desired. Once you make your order, the items will ship directly to the AZ Southern Baptist Mission Network Office.
We are also looking for some more pricey items. These are items that a church or several individuals across Arizona could help provide. These are not found on Amazon. You can give toward them by clicking the “Give Now” link below and selecting Disaster Relief and indicating which item you desire to give toward in the notes section. We will update the status of our items each week.
Chainsaw/Recovery Unit Equipment $3,545
There are many times throughout the year where we are called upon to help recovery efforts by removing the large debris that often is left behind in the wake of a natural disaster. When hurricanes sweep through the gulf states or floods hit the Midwest, we are usually called into action. In order to continue to serve communities in need safely and quickly, we need to keep our equipment up to date. Fulfilling this need will allow our volunteers to have the equipment needed to be able to respond to needs when they arise. Our chainsaw equipment needs are three new MS 261 C-M saws ($1536), a new MS 201 T C-M saw ($600), and a new HT 105 Pole Saw pole saw ($520). Additionally, our recovery team needs a Rigid 18V Brushless Cordless 4-Tool Combo Kit ($568).
Feeding Unit Trailer $90,000
In order for us to continue to do the work tasked to our Feeding Team, we need to replace our current Feeding Unit. Our current Feeding Unit is aged and has begun to lose its functionality. It is also no longer in line with health codes. We need to make sure that our equipment is up to code with Maricopa County Department of Environmental Services so that we can serve effectively across Arizona. There are many times throughout the year that we are called upon to provide food during mass incidents related to natural disasters. When shelters are set up from wildfires in Arizona, we are called upon to help. When hurricanes sweep through the gulf states or floods hit the Midwest, we are usually called into action. To be able to continue fulfilling requests from local, county, state, and national emergency management, and our partners like the American Red Cross, we must upgrade our current equipment to be in compliance with local and national codes. Fulfilling this need will allow our volunteers to have the equipment needed to be able to respond to needs when they arise.
