Featured Volunteers

Woodworkers of Central Ohio

The Woodworkers of Central Ohio (WOCO) have been partnering with the Furniture Bank of Central Ohio since 2010 when President Mike Quinn read an article about our furniture building initiative. Mike and several other WOCO volunteers saw a connection and helped develop prototype, jigs and assembly templates for dressers, kitchen, coffee and end tables and bed frames. Because of their involvement with the Furniture Bank, we are able to provide needed furniture to families struggling with poverty and other severe life challenges. Over the past eight years, WOCO members have volunteered more than 35,000 hours with the Furniture Bank of Central Ohio and celebrated construction of their 10,000th dresser in January of 2018. Thank you, WOCO!
