Woodcraft will sponsor its 17th Turn for Troops National Turn-a-Thon on Nov. 7 & 8 and is asking volunteers to continue supporting those on active military duty or recovering from injuries by making handcrafted wood pens – at either a retail store event or at home for submission to Woodcraft.

In 2019, volunteers turned 15,385 one-of-a-kind pens for a 16-year total of 190,609 pens. Woodcraft’s goal this year is at least 200,000 pens.

“In the midst a COVID-19 environment, Woodcraft is eager to support U.S. military personnel on active duty or recovering from injuries more than ever, realizing that being away from family now is even more stressful,” Woodcraft President and CEO Jack Bigger said in a statement. “We look to our faithful volunteers to respond again and turn many unique pens for the men and women who are keeping our nation safe.”
