 GRANDVIEW, TX

Brian Cook is my neighbor, a retired marine who served our country for many years. On the night of Jan 15,  a tornado came through our neighborhood and took off the roof to his wood working shop. To make matters worse, after the tornado took the roof, the second line of storms drenched all his tools- thousands of dollars worth, and most of them a total loss. 
Wood working is second nature to Brian. It's not just a hobby, it's what keeps him going. That backyard shop to him was like "one of my organs" as he says! 
The tornado took all that away.  The building, and at least half of his power tools are a total loss.
Let's get this hero back in his shop, handcrafting with wood! He gave our country the best years of his life-let's pay him back with a thank you that makes him smile everytime he steps into his warm, new shop! Brian Cook needs it and he deserves it!!

God bless the USA

Breaking News! We are so excited to announce that Leland's Industries of Grandview, TX is teaming up with us and has generously agreed to donate a 12X24 lofted barn to Mr. Cook!! Noting the approaching storms predicted for Sunday, Leland's put the rush on, and they are delivering it tomorrow morning, giving Mr. Cook the chance to move things inside before the approaching storms! We are so GRATEFUL for their kindness and consideration!
While we are thrilled to announce this generous donation, there will be plenty expense replacing damaged tools, getting the new shop all wired up, and hopefully fixing up part of the existing shop. If you are able, please help us finish out this dream!
Thank-you SO MUCH for your gifts! I really appreciate your care and I know Brian does even more!
