Since June 2016, Canyon Creek Cabinet Company has donated assorted hardwood and plywood cut-offs to Emerald Heights Retirement Community’s “Wooden Toys for Charity” group located in Redmond, WA.
The wood pieces donated by Canyon Creek have been turned into cars, airplanes, doll cradles, blocks and other toys by the community’s residents and will then be donated to local charities. This year, “Wooden Toys for Charity” will have around 400 wooden toys for children that will be delivered to local charities throughout Washington.
Resident Dale Thompson discovered the community workshop shortly after moving into Emerald Heights. After inviting other residents to join him, “Wooden Toys for Charity” was created. Currently, there are 12 regulars in the wood shop and a group of women who sew drawstring bags for block sets and bedding for the doll cradles.
“We enjoy seeing our wood cut-offs repurposed into toys for children—five pallets worth so far—and look forward to donating additional wood materials to ‘Wooden Toys for Charity’ in the future,” says John Earl, environmental manager at Canyon Creek.
