Turn for the Troops 2017
A great big Thank You to all the folks that participated in this years "Turn for the Troops" event!!
Between the folks that stopped in the store and turned with us and the volunteers that turned a few (or a hundred) on their own time we ended up with a whopping 700 pens to send over to the men and women serving to protect our country.
The handmade pens may be small in size, but a U.S. Army chaplain who handles distribution of many of the pens, made this observation: “It may just be a pen to you and I, but for Soldiers going to or just surviving a combat zone, your small gift tells them that people still care.” That message has been repeated in the many thank-you notes sent to Woodcraft over the years, including the one below (from Bagram Air Force Base in Afghanistan): “I just wanted to say thank you for the work, dedication and craftsmanship that went into making the pens for us. I received my pen a couple of days before Christmas, and it is great to know that Americans took time from their day to make and send us such a great gift. I never thought the words ‘Handmade in the USA’ would look so good! Thank you, Merry Christmas and God Bless America!”
Next year make sure to stop by... whether it's your first pen or your thousandth come join us and turn for a great cause! - Your Seattle Woodcraft Crew
