Editorial: Woodworking helps them find their way

(Continued)

Granite House owner Eric Spofford, who has known LeBlanc for many years, said the woodworking program is a lifeline for Granite House residents who need opportunities for success.

“He’s working really hard and doing an amazing job with it,” Spofford told Huss.

It’s clear that the young men in the woodworking program enjoy it and are learning useful skills in the process. LeBlanc’s effort is helping draw the young men out of themselves and turning their focus toward others. That the product of this labor goes to help children is a bonus.

LeBlanc hopes to expand his charitable efforts to help others, possibly setting up a diversion program for troubled teens.

LeBlanc’s work with the Granite House residents seems to be helping them, the children who receive the book bins and his small business. We congratulate them all and wish them continued success.
