A big thank you to Peter and Grant Cooper for their many hours of work in constructing wooden learning toys for Strong Start®. The sections of this toy rotate to show the child in Strong Start® how to start with one word and make new words by changing one letter. Peter, a teenager who is already finding ways to help others in the community, worked with his grandfather, Grant.

designed these wooden toys several years ago and have been supplying Strong Start® with this learning tool every year. This year Peter and Grant formed a team and donated 100 wooden toys needed to create new program kits for the expansion of the Strong Start® program. Our ongoing appreciation goes to Grant and a special thank-you to Peter for his generous gift of time and talent!
