We've got the tools - they need them.
We normally fill their woodshop request lists with items such as: screws, nails, saw blades, drill bits, hand and power tools, glue, sandpaper, hinges and hardware, door knobs, paint brushes, etc. But we don't just send hobby and woodshop supplies either...
At their request, we sometimes send much needed, hard to get useful items that we may all take for granted here in the USA: waterproof sunblock and bug repellent; fly glue strips; gel shoe inserts; talcum and other medicated body powder and much more. We once even had a special request from a Chaplain to send them liquid coffee flavors for their coffee shops, because they can't get them over there anywhere.
We are happy to help with special requests!
