Well, we’ve had a very eventful summer so far. Mostly great, but some not-so-great.
We’ll start with the bad…
CRAMBA Trailer Break-in and Tool Theft
Around the first week of July 2013 the CRAMBA-IMBA tool trailer was broken into and nearly all of our power tools were stolen. The loss of these tools — used for building and maintaining trails — is particularly hard mid-summer when our volunteers are working to keep trails clear.
The stolen tools include our backpack blower (BR600), two KombiMotors (KM 90 R and KM 110 R), three KombiSystem attachments (HL-KM, FS-KM, HT-KM), and a dedicated line trimmer (FS 55 R). All together this is nearly a $2000 loss.
We need your donations to help purchase replacements so we can keep our trails great.
Donations may be made via the Donate button in the right hand columnhere or by mail to:

For other donation options (eg: tools, etc) please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, all donations to CRAMBA-IMBA are tax deductible. Receipts are available for all cash or material donations.
(If anyone has information on this theft or locates any of the tools for sale [in a pawn shop, on Craigslist, etc] please contact email@example.com.)
We’d also like to say thank you to everyone who has donated to help restock our power tools after the recent theft. In the past week we have received $840 in cash donations and a new Craftsman backpack blower worth $259.99.
This is nearly half-way to covering the replacement cost of the missing tools!
Thank you to all of our recent donors:
