Eagle Project - Request for Help

posted Nov 3, 2015, 5:09 PM by Riley l.

Kyle K. is working on his Eagle Project and is asking the troop for assistance.  We MAY be asking for help before the meeting on Thursday, starting at 6:00, but we won't know until Thursday afternoon.  If we do need help, I will send an email on Thursday.  

I am forwarding a letter from Kyle to the troop:

Hello, Fellow Scouts
          Kyle K. here and I am currently working on obtaining my Eagle Badge, and am requesting your help.
          I will be collecting new and slightly used books for ages (3 to 5) and early elementary age students. These books will go to the local chapter of PA Head Start Association program which works with preschoolers to help develop their reading skills and learn to love books. They will also help America Reads which coaches and helps K - 4 students to read with more confidence.
          I learned of these programs through my Grandmother who is a volunteer through RSVP (Retired Senior Volunteer Program). She loves to read and so do I.
          So with your help I would like to give other children the opportunity to love to read. If you are able to make a donation please bring your donations of books or money to the next couple of meetings and place in the donation box. I will also be asking for your help in collecting donations after masses on November 15 th and 16 th and in sorting books after all the donations are collected.
          In advance Thank You.
