100 Wooden Toy Cars Built by Wind Crest Residents Delivered to Mexican Orphanage

May 1, 2014

HIGHLANDS RANCH, CO (May 1, 2014) - One hundred wooden toy cars made by Wind Crest retirement community residents this week were delivered to a rural orphanage in Mexico.
The wooden toy cars were built by six residents partnering with Toys for God's Kids (TGK), a nonprofit agency that provides impoverished children with wooden toys, to build over 550 wooden toy cars to be sent to children in Mexico, Guatemala and Afghanistan.
The wooden toy cars were delivered to the Mexican orphanage via a mission by Cherry Hills Community Church in Highlands Ranch.
This ongoing project by the Wind Crest Windy Wooders involves residents working with materials donated by TGK. Wind Crest residents work together each Monday afternoon on the wooden toy cars.
This program is said by resident Bob Weerts to be an opportunity for the Windy Wooders to use their skills and to "rally around a project to form a quality product for a good cause."
