For over 10 years, Starke Tree Care and this wonderful man, Rusty Smith, have been working together to support Water Mission (watermission.org) - a group dedicated to providing access to clean water where it's needed most anywhere in the world.
When Rusty retired, he decided to take up woodworking and uses his spare time to build furniture and other wooden items. He donates 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these items to Water Mission. Starke Tree Care donates both the wood he needs to create these masterpieces, as well as manpower to assist with the milling operation.
With over 2.2 billion people worldwide lacking access to clean drinking water, the need for groups like Water Mission is massive. Working with Rusty also allows us to recycle many beautiful pieces of wood that would otherwise be left to rot or turned into mulch.
