Santa’s Helpers deliver toys around town

Posted by sodaklady on December 13, 2010

My husband is a member of the Rapid City Woodworkers Association that, each year, make toys for different charities around the city. This year my husband helped make a couple hundred little tractors. The pictures don’t do them justice; they’re cute and sturdy  and perfect for little hands, measuring  2 inches high, 3 inches wide and 5 inches long.

Other members of the association made boats, heart boxes, cars, and several other toys, all equally well-crafted and suited for small, enthusiastic owners. Today they took 3 carloads of boxes to WAVI, Benji’s House, and Youth and Family Services.


Here are some of the members of the RCWA.

    That’s fantastic! He is so great at making things of wood.

    I love the turtle he made for us, and it has been added to our collection. We showed it to our family over the weekend, and it drew high praise.

    He deserves much credit for his charity work, as well as for his creativity and craftsmanship.

      I’m glad the turtle was a hit with everyone; he’s one of my favorites.

      Now that the toys are finished for the charities, he’s still in the wood shop making toys for the children of co-workers! I hope to see him sometime NEXT week! 😀

      Err, maybe not; one of the other wood workers is already making plans for next year’s toys!
