PEBC Wish List


The season for house and garage cleaning is upon us and the Prairie Ecology Bus Center could use your help!  Do you have items in your household or garage that you no longer need?  Are they just collecting dust in a back corner?  Are they in good working condition?  If so, the PEBC would like to give them a new home!  The PEBC could use a number of items that will be of great help with programs, office maintenance and Ecology Bus care. 

The PEBC is a non-profit organization that relies on the generosity of donors to help its programs grow.  If you have an item(s) on the list below that you would like to donate for a wonderful cause, please contact Chrystal at the PEBC.
