Sharing - Our Way
At RWF we believe in sharing our good fortune with those who need it. We are pleased to be a member of 1% for the Planet but we are also proud to have come up with a local and unique way of helping others. During the April 2011 tornadoes that ripped through Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, Georgia, Virginia and Kentucky (some up to a mile wide), the tiny town of Phil Campbell, Alabama was literally flattened. After consultation with the mayor, RWF hauled away one of the downed trees in the community and slabbed it and is now air drying it. Once the wood is ready, RWF will create furniture with it which will be auctioned to raise funds to rebuild the town. We loved doing that and we WANT TO DO IT AGAIN AND AGAIN! So, should a beautiful local tree be downed by a storm, or should one of your local area's more Historic trees come down, and if you have a local need you'd like to do a fundraiser for - PLEASE LET US KNOW. If your application is accepted, we'll be thrilled and honored to take a log from the tree, slab it into flitch sawn lumber, air dry it, and when it's ready, build a beautiful piece of furniture from it to help raise funds.
