Groups come together to improve facilities at CAS offices

Stratford Gazette

The family visiting rooms at the Perth-Huron Children’s Aid Society’s Stratford and Goderich offices have new child-friendly tables and chairs thanks to a partnership between the Stratford and Area Woodworkers Club (SAW), Stratford Northwestern secondary school, and the Stratford Kiwanis club.

A dozen members of the SAW club constructed the five sets of specialized wooden furniture over the winter at Northwestern with the assistance of Steve Faber’s construction technology class.

A large donation from the Stratford Kiwanis club covered much of the material cost.

“This is fantastic,” says Larry Marshall, CAS executive director. “This kind of high-quality furniture specifically built for children is very difficult to find and we are very pleased with this donation.”

Gerry Cox, president of the SAW club, says members were happy to apply their skills to such a worth project after becoming aware last fall of the shortage of children’s furniture.

“We really enjoy building the furniture for such a worthwhile group,” he adds.

This was the fifth project the SAW club has done for various charitable organizations in Perth County over the past five years.
