Sacramento Woodcraft Initiative to Benefit Area Schools' Woodshop Programs
SACRAMENTO, Calif., Aug. 3 // PRNewswire // -- Woodworkers and do-it-yourselfers in the area can help raise money for local schools' woodshop programs by shopping at the Sacramento Woodcraft store, located at 9523 Folsom Blvd. between August 15-September 30, company officials announced.
Pat Marion, manager of the Sacramento 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."
Marion 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.

Center High School Orange Grove Adult School
