Community Update comes from Eric Axelrod this week about his new project.
Wood4Good, Ltd. was started when the Axelrod family had some extra wood in the fall of 2019 that was beyond their own needs. In short order people quickly responded to the offer of free wood, as such, the family gave it away.One of the recipients was particularly grateful, so much so that it prompted Eric’s older son Devin to say to his Dad, “I want to do Wood for Good every day.”
Little did Devin know that it was that comment that gave Wood4Good, Ltd. real momentum and that a couple of extra cords of wood would eventually turn into a non-profit just a few days ago.
Without both Devin’s enthusiasm and Logan’s buy-in, it would probably never have taken off. From their Dad’s perspective, it was about family time, and most importantly being able to give back to their community.
One of the most special parts of giving back is that it gives you more than you put in and enriches your life as the giver. A higher purpose is something that Eric was searching for, and Wood4Good fell into his lap. The Axelrod’s are grateful to be able to give back to the community and the state they so deeply value and cherish.
Wood4Good, Ltd. is looking for volunteers and assistance in many areas get in touch with Eric if you are interested.
