A gift to our Training Area Restortation Project (TARP) will help the San Diego-Imperial Council perform much needed repairs to the Mataguay Conference Center. The Conference Center -dining hall and casitas (dormitories) - has been home to Wood Badge, National Youth Leader Training (NYLT) and Project COPE.
Years of diverting funds to other parts of the camp have left the Conference Center in dire need of repairs - from leaking roofs to failing bathroom fixtures and kitchen equipment. Help us towards our goal of raising $100,000, or more, to make the desperately needed repairs.
We have accomplished so much, and are so close to being able to finish the basic restoration of the Mataguay Conference Center. Time is short as our first training event is opening weekend of Wood Badge 2019 on May 1st!
Our Work Parties have been very successful with over 40 people participating for a total of over 800 work hours already dedicated to this project!
|Dining Hall/Kitchen Roof has been stripped and re-laid||41,364|
|Casita #4 roof repaired||5,525|
|Kitchen ceiling has been repaired and painted||Donated|
|All Kitchen equipment has been thoroughly cleaned||Volunteers|

|Toilets and faucets are being repaired in the casitas||Donated|
|Doors and windows repaired/ new lock sets will be installed||Donated|

Due to some very generous donors, we have raised $64,752.73 in cash! This has allowed us to pay for the necessary upgrades thus far.
|Renovate Freezer/Refrigerator (firm bid)||8,000|
|Replace rear kitchen door||400|
|Paint newly repaired walls/ceiling (estimate/seeking paint donor)||500|
|Window screens, other misc.||1,000|

This has left us with a shortfall of over $5,962.
