Mitchell Couch is a carpenter in Lemoore, California and what started as a small kind gesture, has grown incredibly powerful, in love and kindness.
So far he has built dozens of free desks for children in his community.
Mitchell has been a carpenter for over 20 years and recently decided to launch a Do-It-Yourself YouTube channel. In one of his videos, he built a student desk for distance learning.
In his video he says...
"I made this desk out of wood for $20," he wrote. "It might just be the easiest desk you can make for your student. Distant learning can be stressful so let's make this custom desk that you and your child can build together."

How did it expand from just one desk to more.... A local California supermarket caught wind of the tutorial desk video and offered to supply materials if Couch was willing to build more.
Mitchell then posted this on his Instagram account:
"I have to tell you about some amazing people in our community," Couch wrote in an Instagram post. "The owners of the local Grocery Outlet saw my diy desk video and asked me if i could make some desks for them. They wanted to donate them to the local schools for the kids who are in need because of distant learning. I didn't hesitate to help them out."
