The Mason Dixon Woodworkers Club, that I’m the current President, were written up in the newspaper this last weekend. We were the Elves of Christmas.

Here are some of the pictures that were taken of that toys that were made for this years distribution. About 1200 toys were made during 2010, They will be distributed on December 4th to about 25 different charities for them to distribute to families with children that have needs.

Nice work, Karson! Those are some fine toys. I bet that doll bed is a winner every time.

Karson,

What a great cause for the Mason Dixon Woodworkers to support. Those toys will be cherished by all who receive them I am sure.

Karson it’s a wonderful thing that you and your “elves” are doing. I love to see the smiles on the kids faces, it doesn’t take much to make a child with nothing smile. Do you have a pattern for the car? I’d love to try my hand at making some toys for the local kids here.

Love it Karson. I understand volunteers are free, but what about materials? Are they donated as well?

I belong to a non profit group called “Men and Women of Action” (MWA). We are all volunteers who come along side groups who are in need. We mainly build stuctures such as youth camps, schools and such. There is a lot of fund raising that takes place to make these projects come to life.
