Thank you to Evian Peterson who chose to include our YMCA Supportive Housing Campus as part of his Eagle Scout project! Read on to hear what inspired him.
What is your Eagle Scout project and what inspired you to pick it?
My project is collecting shoe donations for the people living in the YMCA Supportive Housing Campus. I chose this project because I know that shoes are an item that a lot of people need, so I wanted to see how I could help people locally with that need.
Where are the donation bins located?
Donation bins are located at local YMCAs (Waukee, Walnut Creek, and Wellmark) as well as in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints located in Waukee.
What are your hopes for this donation drive?
My hope for this donation drive is to reach my goal of 140 pairs of shoes and ensure that the YMCA Supportive Housing Campus doesn't have another need for shoes for a long time.
What are your future plans for school and volunteering?
My future plans include serving a two-year mission for my church and eventually going to college for an education.
