Nate Evans, a member of The Ridge and also a middle school English teacher in Ankeny, founded Woodworking with a Purpose during the COVID pandemic to help kids in Central Iowa have a space of their own to learn and grow.

Nate and a small army of volunteers have rolled up their sleeves and built more than a thousand desks for students in need of personal learning space at home.
Follow Woodworking with a Purpose on Facebook for the latest information on build events, donation information or to request a desk.
