As part of the process for making these toy cars from scrap wood, each car needs to be lovingly checked for rough edges and slivers. We need groups or individuals to check them out, sand and oil them and return them for the next part of the process.
It takes 10 hours for one person, or 1 hour for 20 people to sand and oil a box of 100 cars. You check them out from us, (there might be a wait) and then do the super fun project with your group of amazing friends and bring them right back to us! Everyone feels great about the service they did!
You'll need 15 to 20 palm size pieces of 100-120 grit sandpaper per box of 100 cars. And you'll need one 1" paint brush for every 2 people doing the project. One person sands while one oils and then switch.
We suggest you set up three tables per about 20 people serving. The first table will have the sand paper and the boxes of cars. The second table will have bowls with the oil in them and the paint brushes. The third table will have card board on it.
Have your volunteers grab two cars and go first to the sand table and sand really good on all the edges and inside the window hole. Make the whole car smooth!
Then leave the sand paper and take their two cars to the oiling table. Cover the car inside and out all over with lots and lots of oil. It should take the whole bottle if each car is getting enough. Don't forget the edges and in the hole.
Then let them rest on the third table while they go get another two cars and go through the process again.
It will take 4 hours or so for the cars to completely soak in the oil. Please don't wipe it off. They can be put back in the box after about an hour to finish drying.
There may be a couple months wait to get the cars that you need so please plan accordingly. We like to have them returned within 10 days so they can continue on in their process of becoming a great toy. Please do not take them and keep them for several weeks. ONLY TAKE THEM THE WEEK YOU'LL BE DOING YOUR PROJECT. Sign up below.
Pick up and drop off are Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays between 10 am and 3 pm.

Each car costs us about $2 to make. If everyone gives a little and can donate for their cars it helps us to continue making toys and bringing smiles throughout the world. One box is about $200, but anything helps! Pay for all, part or more than your share to help someone else out.
Thank you for your service
