The Good Samaritan Boys Ranch
Russ also donates time and items for auction to benefit the Good Samaritan Boys Ranch in Springfield, Missouri. Russ will be driving to Springfield in June 2012 to set up a woodworking shop for the boys at the ranch. He will be joined by 2 of his grandsons and 1 granddaughter who will help set up the new shop. Items that will be used to furnish the Woodworking Shop were donated by many fellow woodworkers.
The Good Samaritan Boys Ranch founded by Rev. Bob Johnson and his wife Mary is dedicated to helping boys that come from reformatories, jails, court rooms and broken homes. There are boys of all ages at odds with the law, drifting without anyone to really care and help them.
