For our annual golf league Christmas party, instead of exchanging gifts we pick a charitable organization to donate to. This year the R.J. Scheffel Memorial Toy Project was chosen by the golf league. Enclosed you will find our contribution to your organization. Our best wishes to all your volunteers for a Merry Christmas and our thanks to them for making the lives of children a little bit brighter.

My brother, Bob Herbst, volunteers in your workshop several days a week. On a recent visit in September, he brought me (his sister) with him on a day to help with the toys. I was very impressed with the variety of projects being worked on and the friendliness of all those in the shop. In fact, I even had the chance to help paint trucks and assemble cars.
Please accept this contribution in honor of Bob, and put it to good use. Bob has really enjoyed helping out in the shop.

This contribution is from a client of mine. Every year he gives me gift certificates for restaurants, stores, etc. This year, I asked him not to give anything. So, he wrote this check to the Scheffel Toy Project instead. How cool is that?! See you soon.

Gloss latex polyurethane and paint, particularly in bright colors, can often be used.

Some other items we need include glue, nails, sander belts & disks, saw blades, screws, wood filler, wooden dowels and wheels of different sizes. Plywood sheets, 3/16",1/2" and 3/4" are very helpful, along with 1” x 4” and 1” x 6” or 2" x 4" and 2" x 6" boards.
