We welcome your support. And if you enjoy swinging an axe and are interested in joining the choppers, email Dave and let him know.
As you may know, The Greenangels Woodchoppers started on Pender island about ten years ago with a great crew of mostly retired men, who got together a few times a week to raise money for local charities by chopping and selling cords of wood.
They're still going strong and continue to support the Pender Island community.
Now a new Chopper Chapter has begun, this time on the Saanich Peninsula. Moving to Sidney hasn't stopped Dave! He's still contributing his time and efforts in helping not only Pender, but also folks on the Peninsula. And he's recruiting a new team of choppers. The following is from an email Dave sent out:
"Ina, my brother, Phil, & his best friend, John 'The Cook' Cook, came out to help buck, chop, & deliver a cord of fir for a disabled Tsartlip First Nations High School friend of the four of us.
When John and I heard that there was a donation attached to our work today and that the money was going to help a family in the Philippines we were both blown away.
Holy Mackerel, to get out and get a little sunshine and some much needed exercise and help a friend put up some wood for the coming winter and then find out that this event has also had an impact on some 'friends' overseas, is pretty outstanding.
Randy's best friend, Rick, then asked if we could help his friend out, by bucking a tree that came down during the storm,at her Pauqauchin home.
The 'Big' Island Chopper brigade decided that the donation, from these initiatives, would go to supporting one of our Pender Choppers' family initiative in the Philippines."
