With a heart to show the next generation how important it is to be able to fix and build things for generations to come, Chris and Tammy Reedy of Happy Rock Construction began the Toolbox Club at Lindbergh Elementary.

The two lead up to eight students weekly on Wednesdays for one hour after school. The 5th graders have built a toolbox and painted it, while 3rd and 4th graders have worked on small wooden projects. The 2nd graders have been introduced to tools.

Chris and Tammy love watching the kids interact with them and seeing their eyes light up as they complete a project. “We use hammers to first pop bubbles on the bubble wraps and you see how excited they are,” shared Tammy. “We watch and feel as though it gives them hope and shows them that they can do anything that they put their minds to! It brings such excitement to Chris and I when they come and give us hugs and high fives, and we know we made a difference! That is so rewarding.”
