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.

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


Center High School Orange Grove Adult School
Colfax High School Placer High School
Cosumnes Oaks High School Ponderosa High School
Crystal Middle School Rio Vista High School
Del Campo High School Sheldon High School
Del Oro High School Spring View Middle School
El Dorado High School T.R. Smedberg Middle School
Elizabeth Pinkerton Middle School Union Mine High School
Granite Oaks Middle School Vallejo High School
Inderkum High School William Daylor High School
Lodi High School Winston Churchill Middle School
Oakmont High School Modoc High School
Oakridge High School


For additional information or to participate, visit the Sacramento Woodcraft Store or contact them at (916) 362-9664.

Woodcraft is the industry leader in providing top quality products, educational opportunities and one-on-one guidance to woodworkers at all skill levels.
