Wisconsin Public Television program to share the story of holiday toy making project that started with two UWL employees
Wisconsin Public Television will feature a local holiday toy making tradition that started with two UW-La Crosse employees nearly two decades ago. This Wisconsin Life profile will air statewide at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 20, on Wisconsin Public Television (Milwaukee broadcast times are different).
The two UWL employees, Scott Cooper and Kurt Grunwald, started a tradition of making handcrafted wooden toys to donate to charities during the holiday season 19 years ago. Today, the two, along with a group of UWL faculty, staff, students and other community members build, paint and donate about 50 wooden toys each year.
