The fixed facility cost to operate and maintain the warehouse is approximately $50,000 per year. This includes utilities, insurance, and minimal upkeep. The warehouse and campus were constructed to be low maintenance and is operated frugally; MNA DR strives to be good stewards of God’s resources. Please consider ongoing support to make sure this vitally needed resource is available to serve the PCA for the future. Consider creating a line item for the warehouse operational fund in your annual presbytery and/or church budget. Another way to lend financial support is to hold a special event each year to raise awareness and raise support to channel funds to the operational fund.

All of the supplies and equipment stored in the warehouse have been supplied by cheerful givers. Please prayerfully consider contributing to the Equipment & Supplies Fund. With each new disaster the warehouse is emptied out and needs to be replenished. Major equipment items and other items that have serial numbers are returned for maintenance and readied for the next event. Supplies need to be replenished.
