I hope they inspire you to pick up your craft tools of choice and make something for the child who will receive your shoebox gifts.

Got Wood? Love Wood?

I would love to put together a woodworking team for Operation Christmas Child!

If you, or someone you know, loves to work with wood and would like to make gifts to touch a child’s life with the Good News, let me know.

Let’s get those saws busy!  Smile

Do you wonder if wood can make a difference?  I would say most certainly it can, if we let it.  Red heart

You can make a difference by using your talents, your interests and your creativity!
