"A Sanctuary in the City… Living Faith"

Eagle Scout Project Report

Hi, my name is Garrett Bloom and I am a Life Scout with Boy Scout Troop 205, based here at First Presbyterian Church. I am currently working on my Eagle Project, the culmination of my Scouting experience. Last spring, I had the opportunity to help with the “Stop Hunger Now” event hosted by First Presbyterian Church. I was very impressed with the organization and decided that I would like to organize a packaging event for my project. Stop Hunger Now, now known as “Rise Against Hunger,” is an international relief organization that distributes food and aid to the world’s most vulnerable. I decided that I wanted to take my Eagle Project beyond “building a bench,” and instead, help those in desperate need in the international community.

“Thank you” for the support that I have received from First Presbyterian Church. I have reached the monetary requirement for the project!

I am currently in the process of gathering volunteers to work the “Rise Against Hunger” food packaging event. The beneficiaries of this project will be vulnerable international communities. The event I am organizing will package over 10,000 meals. The food helps communities in crisis, as well as providing food for school children in developing countries.

I will be in the Gathering Place before and after Worship May 28 take the names of people interested in helping with the food packaging event, scheduled for June 4, at 12:30, immediately following the All-Church Picnic.

Thank you for your support!
