    Hey guys, I'm looking to get some sheets of OSB and some 2 by 3s donated for our haunt this year. I was wondering if any of you guys have done this in the past, and wheather you went to Lowes or Home Depot. We use the haunt to collect donations and 100% of the proceeds go to the Wounded Warrior Project. I'll probably need 30-50 sheets of OSB and about 100 2 by 3s. Thanks in advance guys!
    *Sigh*I can't wait til' October

    I have found the best lumber yards are the smaller ones Home Desperate and Lowes around me where not will to give it for free but at 40 to 50 percent off but I have hit up a few smaller stores for thousands of free wood. Good luck to you and you should have a tax number from your charity to help you get the donations.

    hope that helps

    Thanks! You're probably right, harder to give out small donations when you're such a large company.

    Hey here is another free wood source for you. I am getting the largest fence company to bring me there old wood fencing they tear out when they replace it with new. It is great looking wood to nice and old really good weathering. you should hit up your local fence company they don't have too pay to dump it if you take it for free.

    I'm in Colorado, North of Denver, so probably too far. I'm not sure though, I might be able to, but I doubt it.
