Extremely-Sharp and Big Chiefs
The first step was to get with full-time teachers and find out which students could or would benefit from any kind of program that centered on respect, hard work, and fun. The most we have had were 30 kids and 20 volunteers, and because of drastic reductions in donations that number fell to 18 kids in 2012.
We take the kids camping, hiking, fishing and do projects like building bird houses and feeders. Other projects include building holiday baskets and delivering meals. The largest project is what we call Firewood for the Poor. There have been landowners locally that have had logging crews come in and make messes of their property. We go in and cut into firewood the trees that were left behind and down by the loggers. We do not cut standing timber." Big Chiefs is what we look for when sponsoring organizations. They are small group of guys that just want to help kids. The kids are their main focus. We need more of that. We at ESKNIVES tip our hats to the guys at Big Chiefs.
