The Highland County Community Action Organization Head Start program received a generous donation of wood toys hand-crafted by Craftsmen for Kids. The toys included building blocks, cars, ramps, puzzles, doll beds with dolls, flappy ducks, lacing boards, geometric bead stringing sets, barns, and more. The Craftsmen for Kids creates high quality, hardwood learning tools for Head Start classrooms, battered women’s shelters, and similar facilities serving at risk children.
