Wish List

These are just a few of the things we could really use. If you are willing to donate or loan anything, please let us know!

This is a win-win situation. You get your space back and you can still come to Xerocraft and use the tools!

Remember, donations may qualify as tax deductions (depending on your tax situation). We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

We could really use some wireless routers for a mesh network project.
