Saw this story from ABC and just had to share.  A teacher from Ankeny, Iowa noticed in Virtual calls that many of his students didn't have the proper work space for school.  Many of them just sitting on the edge of their bed or kitchen table to do school work.  So he did something about it.  And now others are volunteering to help.  The highlights are below. See the entire story from ABC HERE.

Nate Evans, a 7th grade literacy teacher from Ankeny, launched the project he calls Woodworking with a Purpose. He and 50-plus volunteers have built roughly 600 desks for kids after Evans noticed some were logged into virtual classes while sitting at kitchen tables or on their beds.

 

Evans first paid for the supplies to build desks using money from his own pocket. But after posting his idea to Facebook, community donations started flooding in.
Evans has set a goal of 2020 desks to be donated.
