Handcrafted desks are donated

Over forty of these handcrafted school desks were part of the inventory that was loaded in Norfolk yesterday to be shipped to Manila, Philippines. The desks seat two students side by side and are beautifully made. Bookshelves were also handcrafted to send as students there do not have their own books but share books from the classroom bookshelves. Other inventory included school supplies, blankets, hygiene kits, and 43,200 Mercy Meals. A special thank you to the craftsman that built and donated these desks to ship. What a labor of love for those in need! For craftsmen that are interested in such a project, patterns are available.
