Special Tool Dedication
This year we have partnered with local organization, RAWtools, to help suicide loss survivor, Pete Leizer, honor his loved ones through a tool dedication. RAWtools takes surrendered weapons and turns them into other useful tools.
They have helped Pete to create a special tool that he will dedicate and donate to open our Tree Planting Ceremony this year. We are honored to help Pete say goodbye by using this tool to help sustain life.
