KOB: ABQ Man Builds, And Gives Away, Desks For Local Students


From KOB-TV:

The sound of sanding, cutting a buzzing can be heard coming from Dennis Miller Albuquerque wood shop.

Building desks for students who are stuck learning from home has become his passion project during the pandemic.

"If they have to do remote learning they need their own space," Miller said. 

Miller, who retired from the military and Sandia National Labs, has no previous wood-working experience. 

"A lot of trial and error," he said.

So far, he's given away 90 desks-- for free.

"I've got pictures of kids at their desks just beaming," he said.

He said he just wants students to succeed, and he hopes he can help them help make that happen.

There is also a verified GoFundMe page setup to help Mr. Miller. So far he has paid about $3000 out of pocket to make the desks. CLICK HERE for the GoFuneMe page.
