Sierra Pacific Foundation donates to God’s Work for Man

By From page B10 | July 07, 2012

God’s Work for Man is pleased to announce the generous donation of $500 from Sierra Pacific Foundation recently.

According to Robert Thresher, chairman of God’s Work for Man(GW4M), this donation from Sierra Pacific Foundation will go toward the purchase of used production grade woodworking equipment.

Apprentices will use these machines while learning woodworking skills and creating beautiful heirloom hardwood rockers.

Craftsmen have been donating their time to create the first rockers and we want to create a self-sustaining cottage industry that brings jobs to El Dorado County. So many people are out of work and this will be an opportunity for people who need job skills and like to work with their hands.

GW4M will use some local hardwood that may have been wasted in landfills or put in burn piles.

The work will not only create jobs but will also help the environment by using local resources to build products.
The mission statement for GW4M is to provide programs promoting the learning of woodworking and/or industrial skills, rebuilding lives, dignity and the ability to be self-sufficient.

It is a tax exempt public charity and donations are always appreciated.

To find out how to help contact Mary Thresher, GW4M, at 530-748-9582, [email protected] or God’s Work for Man at
