Did you know that children's desks for Mission Schools around the world are created at
The desks are built mainly of recycled bleacher wood that has been reclaimed from public buildings such as schools, community centers, and churches who are renovating or updating their facilities. Our volunteers clean and plane the wood, cut it to size, assemble it into desks, and add two coats of
clear polyurethene finish.
HOW CAN YOU BE A PART OF THIS
IMPORTANT RECYCLING PROJECT?
If you hear of a facility that is planning to remove their wooden bleachers, let us know! We can save them money in disposal costs and, in some cases, we can send a team to help remove the bleachers and give them a second life.
