Woodcraft announced nearly 13,000 pens turned by volunteers during the retailer’s 12th annual Turn for Troops event in November.

The pens are given to military personnel defending the U.S. overseas or recovering in rehabilitation centers.

“Woodcraft is happy to report that 12,909 unique pens have been sent to the men and women who are defending American freedom, often in harm’s way,” Woodcraft president Jody Garrett said in a statement. “The Woodcraft corporate staff extends a heartfelt thanks to the hundreds of volunteer turners and store staff members who made this outreach to servicemen and women possible.”

Volunteers have turned a total of 132,398 pens since the national “turn-a-thon” began.
