Pens for Health Care Professionals

Given our current climate amid the COVID-19 outbreak, our club members would like to show their appreciation to our local health care workers by offering a handmade pen (with a medical insignia clip) along with a note of thanks and gratitude.  

We have titled this project, “Pens for Health Care Professionals”.  We will be offering our pens to the health care workers at the Lakeridge Heath Center & Lakeridge Health Ajax & Pickering Hospital, as well as, the teams of Paramedics at Durham EMS.

In order to facilitate this project, we are reaching out for financial assistance from our local area businesses, as well as, individuals.  Our initial goal will be to raise $2,500 for the purchase pen kits and wood blanks to produce each pen. The funds raised will produce roughly 250 pens to be distributed to each of the centers. 

Donations can be made directly through the club’s web site, www.durhamwoodworkingclub.com in preassigned increments.  The club will also accept cheques, made to The Durham Woodworking Club or cash.

We realize the economic challenges faced by all businesses at present, we are asking for contributions toward our goal, no matter the dollar value, every dollar raised will go directly into this program and into our community.  On behalf of our membership, thank you in advance for your support.
