I am so proud of this boy! Over 200 hours have been put in to this Eagle Scout project, a little project creep, lots of organizing, detail, and leading. Alex stepped up like a man & did what needed to be done to do this project. He oversaw & directed the prepping, scraping, painting, repairs, shimming, re lighting, carpet removal, & trash disposal on this property. He has an amazing scout leader who has helped him with every step along the way. It felt good to be a part of this day, Change the World Allen, TX. It humbled me to see volunteers show up for Alex. They came & stayed and worked along side us. People who don't even know our family personally!! We are new to the community & with so many projects going on, volunteers needed to come from places that were not from our circle. Multiple service projects were going on at the same time, 7 were from Alex's scout troop alone. Various religions & members of the community came together with one purpose & it was a beautiful thing. Lunches & water were donated, along with the materials & supplies needed for the project. When I picked up lunch at a nearby church that was not our own, it was jam packed with families & volunteers packing meals to be shipped to starving children. Others gathered food for our local food bank. On my way to and from, I passed several sites with cars parked along the streets, volunteers grouped around helping those in their community. It made my heart swell to be a part of something bigger, a feeling that we are each other & we help each other. I love our local community & am grateful my family is a part of it.
