Volunteers of all ages and from all walks of life and economic levels help Wood-to-Wonderful make wooden toys, some of which are used in conjunction with Wood-to-Wonderful’s “Reading is Toyrific” program. Wooden toys are also sent periodically to a literacy program for deserving first graders in Montgomery County, Maryland, which is headed by a former Wood-to-Wonderful volunteer. In addition, toys are distributed to grass roots organizations that serve needy children across the United States throughout the year—especially at Christmas. Up to 10,000 toys are distributed yearly.

toys for less fortunate children. To this end, over 150,000 wooden toys have been made and distributed to needy children over the years. Wood-to-Wonderful is a 501(c)(3) organization
