The Dickinson Area Community Foundation recently awarded a $500 Community Impact Grant to Pine Creek Woodworking. The grant was made possible through a matching grant with the Pasahow Family Fund. The funds will be used to purchase new carpentry equipment. Pine Creek Woodworking is a new local non-profit organization that was created to help veterans and seniors learn the craft of woodworking. The facility will be available free of charge and will be accessible to people with disabilities. All labor for the facility update was volunteer, with a plan to open in 2023. An additional $75,000 is needed to purchase woodworking equipment. If you would like to donate to Pine Creek Woodworking, please send a check for any amount to: Pine Creek Woodworking, W7401 Upper Pine Creek Drive, Iron Mountain, MI 49801. Every dollar donated will be used for equipment and building updates.
