Aonghus loved to create and build things!  From a very young age he would build with wood, Legos, metal, anything he could get his hands on.  When he got a little older, he got interested in 3D Printing.  He taught himself CAD design, saved up birthday money and bought himself a printer.  It hummed away in his room at all hours of the day and night!  His plan was to go to CIT for Machining and Tooling so that he could expand on his skill and work toward a career in that area.  

Our goal is to help a Senior from the Lehigh Valley,  who is enrolled in or who plans to attend a Post Secondary Trade School for a traditional trade to get a jump start on their tools and materials needed to pursue their career!

We are raising money to do just that annually. 

Our goal is $2000 in tools and materials and $500 cash .
