At the end of July, our central office (1224 E. Elizabeth) suffered a major flood due to an unexpected plumbing failure. This office houses all our warehouse where we store supplies, our administration offices, co-working space for Directors to plan for programs, snack delivery and more – it is literally the heart of BASE Camp. When the flooding happened, it also released asbestos, causing us to have to evacuate immediately. For a few weeks, we operated out of some available space provided by our friends at United Way while our office was abated. We are thankful to be back home and awaiting final construction to get things back to normal. We were very lucky to have good insurance that has covered most of the expenses. However, as we crest the cap of replacement and re-construction reimbursement costs, we need your help! Our warehouse held many of the supplies we use at program every day. We’d love your help in re-couping those. Our goal is to fulfill the supply list and raise $10,000 to ensure programming is unaffected by this unfortunate situation.
