Donate Money to Buy Building Materials




We have finished the last few homes at Camp Second Chance!  We could not have done it without your generous donations of money, time and talents.  Thank you so much for all you have done to make Camp Second Chance a thriving tiny home village!!



We are an all-volunteer staff.  That means 100% of your donation goes toward building materials and supplies.  Here are ways you can give.


$3000 purchases one tiny home.




Additionally, $25 will buy

a box of nails, a case of calk, a can of paint, small hand tools, and so much more.






We also take donations of construction materials.



Do you have “leftovers” of a home improvement project?  WE WILL TAKE THEM!  All donations help to lower the cost of construction. 

Here’s what we are looking for:


Any standard  “2×4” (1-½” x 3 ½”) 8 ft or longer in length- common lengths we use are 8 ft, 10ft, and 12ft.

Any standard “2×6” (1-½” x 5 ½”) 8ft or longer in length- common lengths we use are 8ft and 12ft

Plywood sheets (4’x8’) of ¾” thickness for subfloor and roof sheathing.

Plywood sheets (4’x8′) of 1/2″ thickness, finish quality or “cabinet grade” for interior walls.


We can accept any amount of roof bundles, we typically mix and match them.


We accept newer paint (no rust on can)  1 gal or 5 gal cans. (Sorry, no half cans or amounts smaller than 1 gallon). We use Interior Latex, any sheen, any color. Oil Primers such as Kilz or Zinsser brand and Exterior Latex paints, any color.  We do not use any wood stains or special coatings.

Nails and Screws

We use a wide range of screws and nails in large quantities. Most common nails we use are 3” framing nails (21 deg)  for framing nail guns. Coil panel nails and coil roofing nails for roofing nail guns. We also have need for screws of varying sizes. Please send a photo of the label on box for better identification.
