School desks

$150 Value


Did you know that children's desks for Mission Schools around the world are created at Midwest Mission. 


The desk shop builds school desks using recycled bleacher wood and donated counter tops. The bleacher wood has been reclaimed from public buildings such as schools, community centers, & churches who are renovating or updated their facilities. Our missionaries clean, plane, and cut the wood to size. They then assemble the desk while labeling each piece for easy directions to reassemble once delivered. Once labeled it gets taken back apart to get 4 coats of clear polyurethane for the finishing touch. 


* Midwest Mission is accepting donates of counter-tops and bleacher wood.*

Feel free to notify Midwest Mission of potential bleacher wood that is available.



*We are no longer accepting desks built off site.*

Restoration

These restoration projects require hand on attention to detail and mechanical know how. Midwest Mission is blessed to have such skills available to us, through our missionaries. These machines not only provide a means to support one's family but they open new doors for great opportunities for these families to grow.
