I completely understand, Ray. We are always (every day) looking for donations for OBR in one capacity or another. We have both fundraising and marketing committees (along with five others). We eventually need a first response trailer for our command centers that can sleep some people, serve as a strategic planning area and also haul supplies. When we look to raise money for those kinds of purchases, we definitely let people know what it's for. Thing is, a lot of times, it's human nature not to think about things like this until it happens. I'm as guilty of that as anyone. I understand also your hope that nothing happens. We definitely hope the exact same thing. We just want to be as prepared as possible so that everything goes smooth as possible in the event the time comes that we are called to help people. Thanks for your input and understanding.
