Would Works & Nick Offerman partner for version 2.0

We are proud to announce that our incredible non-profit Would Works is back in action and better than ever. Thanks to the creation and hard work of Connor Johnson and the generosity of wood worker/actor Nick Offerman we are now ‘back in business'.

A few weeks ago we had our first session to prepare cutting boards for the launch of the new Would Works website and fund raising campaign.

Four members spent three days in the basement of a Skid Row Housing Trust sanding, branding and finishing white oak cutting boards. Each day the artisans arrived with the eagerness to learn and put in a hard day's work.

Rocky, a former plumber and Marine, and Gregory, also a veteran, were both working towards a goal to help pay rent. Another artisan had secured a hotel room for one night but didn't have anything lined up for the next. At the end of his session he stated:

“This is the best job I’ve ever had.”

All four gentleman busted their butts in the downtown LA summer heat, creating beautiful hardwood cutting boards.

Stand by. This is just the beginning! Would-Works’ wood products will be hitting the cyber 'shelves' very shortly, while employing and empowering individuals going through challenging times. We'll be reporting on each session and how the Would Works team provides quality work opportunities for those in need.
