Carpenters Needed to Help Build Wooden Boxes with the LA Rabbit Foundation

ALL SUMMER LONG! The LA Rabbit Foundation needs wooden boxes for rescued rabbits. The boxes will be patterned after rabbit "nest boxes" and would keep bunnies warmer, and give them a place to hide and a box to jump on. Unfortunately they don't have the funding for any supplies so they would have to be donated. Supplies: 3/4" solid unfinished pine wood, small nails or screws. They have a blueprint for the boxes and will email to anyone wanting to make them. This would be a super project for a school group, Eagle Scouts, etc.

Support our Troops and Make Paracord Landyards at Home with Operation Gratitude
