Needs For The Ranch
Listed below are some of those needs. Needs here on the ranch can be made by shopping our Amazon Wishlist, donating towards specific items that support local businesses in the Brazos Valley, or by making a one time or recurring donation to be used to support our daily needs and operation.
From the pasture to house yards to our administration team and office we all work together to keep our mission of "Taking Children From Crisis To New Creation" thriving and growing.
Support Our Ranch Needs From Local Businesses
The administrative and school offices require different supplies each year. Specifically we are in need of white boards, dry erase markers, file folders, envelopes, printer paper, etc.
Gift Cards - Gas, Groceries, Restaurants, Etc.
Two of our biggest budget items for the homes are gas and groceries. You can imagine with 8 growing teenagers it takes a lot for meal planning and grocery shopping. Gas gift cards help our homes with their vans but also the ranch tractors, lawn mowers, weed eaters and chainsaws.
Gas Push Mower
Push Mowers are needed for small yards or for some of our kids that are not yet big enough for riding lawn mowers. We all work together to keep our grounds and yards neat and tidy.
Washing Machines and Dryers are appliances that get used daily and handle a lot from our 8 children in each home. From daily clothes, towels and bed spreads you can imagine the wear on our washers and dryers.
Washers and Dryers take on loads of clothes each day with a house full of 8 children. From daily clothes, towels and bedding.
Our Promise Land home is in need of a new refrigerator. Each of our homes is setup with two of every appliance. You can imagine cooking for a house with 8 growing boys requires a lot of refrigerator space.
We are in need of (3) Stoves for different homes here on the ranch. Each of our homes have (2) of each major appliance. These get used daily in a house with 8 children.
Each of our homes have (2) of each appliance to help with cooking and cleaning for 8+ growing children. Currently, we are in need of (4) dishwashers for our homes.
Standing Upright Freezer
Our donation hall and our homes all have freezers as meal prepping for a house of (8)+ kids takes organization and freezer space. We are in need of (2) freezers right now.
12 Passenger Van
We are in need of a (1) 12 Passenger Van to complete our fleet of vans for each of our homes. These vans are used to transport kids to school, appointments, shopping, trips, church and all the family outings.
13 gal. Tall Kitchen Bags Drawstring
Trash bags are always in use from the homes, office, cafeteria, school and arena. These are a must have!
Summer Fun Family Trips
Every Summer our homes enjoy planning a family trip with their entire house. In the past we have had houseparents take their home to the beaches of Florida, Smokey Mountains, Colorado, Galveston and weekend getaways to Texas theme parks. Your donation helps with the costs of these trips for our homes.
We have (6) homes here at Still Creek. Trips differ base on the houseparent
