Volunteer carving a niche at 93

A 93-year-old Sturgeon Bay man is still using his woodworking skills to benefit Feed and Clothe My People of Door County.  Herb Klein retired to Door County from Chicago over 27 years ago and shortly thereafter volunteered his time to the organization.  Making handmade birdhouses out of old donated shoes and carving walking sticks out of deadwood from maple trees, Klein can finish one of his unique creations in about two hours.  Klein, who volunteers a few hours every Monday and Thursday morning, says he enjoys helping in what he calls a perfect recycling operation.

 

 

The birdhouses and walking sticks are $20 each and are available in the Thrift Store located within Feed My People of Door County.  Klein recommends people to get involved and help out any way they can.  He has also made shelving and portable carts for the organization in the past.  You can see pictures of the birdhouses and walking sticks with this story below.
