Arizona Man Makes Desks for Kids Learning From Home
Call him the Santa of homeschooling. Steve Weinberg has been toiling away in his Scottsdale, Arizona garage making desks to donate to kids who are learning from home. Weinberg says he got the idea after seeing a news story about a man in California who was doing the same thing. It takes Weinberg about an hour to make each desk. He's made about 15 so far working in the evenings and on weekends. Inside Edition Digital's Mara Montalbano has more.
