Students building furniture for needy families

High school students in Turkey are using leftover wood from their workshop to build furniture for families in need.

The students have been working hard on their school projects, trying to get good grades. But they found that after finishing their projects, they had extra wood — and extra time.

So, they started working together to build bedroom furniture, tables for children, bookcases, windows, doors and kitchen cabinets — among other pieces of furniture — for families who can’t afford to buy them on their own.

Not only that, the students are also fixing broken furniture for families.

So far, the students have helped about 30 families and are excited to keep working and — as one of the teachers explained — experience “the beauty of sharing.”
