Volunteers of all ages and from all walks of life and economic levels help Wood-to-Wonderful make wooden toys which are used in conjunction with Wood-to-Wonderful’s “Reading is Toyrific” program and distributed throughout the year.
"READING IS TOYRIFIC"
“Reading is Toyrific” is Wood-to-Wonderful’s awesome motivational literacy outreach program which has been providing monthly books and related toys to at-risk, early learners since 2003.
CAN IT (Clean A Neighborhood In Town) is a litter abatement program conceived and implemented by Wood-to-Wonderful in 2007 in Reading.
ADULTS WITH DISABILITIES
A very special relationship with the organization Prospectus Berco has allowed Wood-to-Wonderful to provide these wonderful individuals the opportunity to partake in making game boards and yoyos which are distributed throughout the country.
Since 2008 the Re-Bike-Cycle shop has been a place for needy children in Reading to obtain a refurbished bicycle. Up to 500 donated bicycles per year found their way back into circulation through the efforts of Wood-to-Wonderful’s Re-Bike-Cycle.
