Hand carved wooden toys donated to Family and Children’s Center in La Crosse

For many, the best way to keep the happy in their holidays is to give rather than receive.

That is the case for a group of wooden toy makers in our area.

A donation of hand carved toys was delivered to the Family and Children’s Center Wednesday morning.

The tradition dates back twenty years that the group has made toys to be donated.

This year, kids will get a stepping stool, something that will be more than just fun.

“Once a child has that item, that item becomes theirs, and they don’t want to share with their brother and sister, so we’re very, very excited to be getting those stools so kids can brush their teeth and see themselves in the mirror, it’ll be great,” said Jamie Korn, Family and Children’s Center development director.

The group donated about 75 toys.
