Cody Porter Eagle Service Project – I am collecting move in essential items for our Veterans such as body wash, cleaning products and other kitchen and bathroom items.

Collection is in progress – if you have items to donate please let me know and I can arrange drop off or pick up.

In mid-October I will have a date where the Scouts will come to my house and sort the items that I have collected. Shortly after that I will be delivering the collected items to my chosen Veterans Administration location. Please no food, appliances or furniture. Gift cards and cash donations are accepted and will be used to purchase items for the Veterans with special needs. Please feel free to pass this information to family and friends.
