Woodcraft is preparing for its 16th Turn for Troops National Turn-a-Thon on November 9-10. Woodcraft retail stores throughout the U.S will host Turn-a-Thons and invite volunteers to come and make unique gifts for military personnel on active duty and recovering in rehabilitation facilities.
During 2018, a total of 17,097 one-of-a-kind wood pens were turned, bringing the 15-year total to 175,224, according to the retailer.
“Woodcraft encourages anyone interested in making a special thank you gift for a man or woman serving in the military to become a volunteer pen turner for a day at your local Woodcraft store,” said Jack Bigger, Woodcraft’s president and CEO. “Without volunteers – from the public and Woodcraft employees – the Turn for Troops program could not reach out to thousands of military personnel annually.”
To participate in the Turn-a-Thon, contact the nearest Woodcraft store.
