Workbenches for Veterans
By Chase Senior
DIMOCK TOWNSHIP — Students at a trade school in Susquehanna County were given the task of building some very special benches for some very special veterans.
At the Susquehanna County Career and Technology Center near Montrose, students are fine-tuning their carpentry craft.
Recently, a group of students has been working on a project that has a greater purpose — constructing six new workbenches that will be donated to “Hunts for Healing,” a nonprofit organization near Laceyville that assists post 9/11 wounded combat veterans.
“What the school did here for us is they built these workbenches for an upcoming event that we have next week. We’re doing a build a gun event, where they build a custom flintlock rifle, so they’re going to use this bench to mount the vises on them, their tools, and they’re going to build the guns on it,” explained Ethan Demi of Hunts for Healing.
