Colorado Springs Woodcraft Initiative to Benefit Area Schools' Woodshop Programs

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Aug. 3 // PRNewswire // -- Woodworkers and do-it-yourselfers in the area can help raise money for local schools' woodshop programs by shopping at the Colorado Springs Woodcraft store, located at 750 Garden of the Gods Road, between August 15 - September 30, company officials announced.

Ben Myers, manager of the Colorado Springs Woodcraft store, said, "With the economy getting tight and shrinking educational budgets, Woodcraft wants to help maintain the quality of local school woodshop programs. To do that, we're going to give away five percent of our store's gross profits during the 45 day campaign period to qualifying schools, but we need everyone's help to do it."

Myers said when a customer makes a purchase they will be able to dedicate the dollar amount of the purchase to their favorite local school. At the end of the campaign period, the top five schools will split the proceeds. For the schools that do not fall into the top five, they will be awarded woodworking tools and equipment donated by Woodcraft vendors, such as Jet, Kreg, Fox Chapel, FEIN and Steel City.

Area schools participating in the "Giving Back to Schools" campaign,
include:


Rampart High School
Eagleview Middle School
Timberview Middle School
Buena Vista High School
Mountain Ridge Middle School
Manitou Springs High School
Liberty High School
Falcon Middle School
