On November 20, 2016, the Jax Woodworkers Club was honored to be able to donate 5,135 toys to sixteen area organizations that help children. This includes 700 guitars made for RULON International. In the past 26 years, JWC has donated more than 50,000 toys.
Each agency sent a representative who shared with our members how our toys help these children get through the trauma they are experiencing in their lives. The toys bring a smile to their faces and many moments of fun and imagination that carries them away from their troubled lives.
JWC offers a special thanks to St. Catherine's Episcopal Church for opening their doors and donating space for this event. A special thanks goes out to the volunteers from St. Catherine's for helping make this possible. Also, we want to honor Friendship Quilters Guild for making all the quilts for the cribs. Each one is different and made with love.
