This is what I found on CBSNEWS.COM:
The holiday season has come to an end and families across the U.S. are taking down their decorations and throwing out their trees. But one man in Texas is repurposing the discarded evergreens for a good cause.
Jamie Willis runs Canes for Veterans Central Texas, an organization that creates free walking sticks out of scrap wood for veterans in need. Willis was inspired to start the organization in 2016, when he found himself in need of a sturdy cane, he told CBS News.
Oscar Morris, who runs Free Canes for Veterans had to apologize to Willis because they were all out. However, Morris was able to offer Willis another gift: He taught Willis how to make a cane himself.
WATCH: People across the U.S. are throwing out their Christmas trees – and this man wants them. He uses discarded trees to make free canes for veterans in need 💚https://t.co/nouHsJ449B pic.twitter.com/Pp8Lgvybb9
