Review for Wood to Wonderful Inc, Reading, PA, USA
Wood-to-Wonderful is an exceptional charity, providing a loving, supportive experience for adults with special needs. The adults work in a safe environment enveloped by nurturing kindness and careful supervision. Doug and Louise provide an experience in which these individuals not only make wooden toys but they gain social skills and are part of a caring community of other workers. Not only do Doug and Louise provide this remarkable experience for the adults, but they also provide books and accompanying toys for young children in Reading public schools. They even send their wooden toys to Title One first grade students in Maryland to accompany books provided by Reading Is Teriffic, a children's charity inspired by Wood-to-Wonderful. In Reading, Wood-to-Wonderful has a Can-it program, providing beautifully-painted trash cans (again, decorated under the Browns' loving guidance), which are placed strategically throughout Reading. Wood-to-Wonderful is indeed a charity in every sense of the word, using the money they raise to provide a caring, loving experience for those they serve, and at the same time helping these individuals feel a sense of purpose and self-worth.
