Our initial goal was to build 500 desks. Because of generous donations from so many individuals, and sponsorships from our good friends at Cofer Brothers and The Decatur Education Foundation, we’ve raised funds to build 600.
We’ve built 407 desks so far, and over 330 desks are in use by kids learning at home; More to be picked up and delivered over the holidays.
And we’ve also paid it forward with sharing our working plans with a woodworker in Chicago who saw our social media posts and was inspired to build and donate desks in his community!
