Eagle Project Help

Posted on Apr 20 2016 - 1:45pm

Hello everyone! I will be doing a glasses collection starting this week at the troop meeting as my eagle project for Nicaragua. The glasses I collect will go to the organization Hopeful Ways, who will distribute them in Nicaragua.  Nicaragua is the 2nd poorest country in the western hemisphere after Haiti.  Many of these people work on farms or are outside all the time.  The sun shines bright almost all the time and wind and dust hit their faces.  This causes for their eyesight to deteriorate over time.  The goal of Hopeful Ways is help fix this problem by gathering optometrist volunteers and sending them to Nicaragua to distribute donated glasses.  These volunteers determine what kind of glasses is the best fit for them.  You can help this cause by donating your gently used prescription, readers, safety, sunglasses, and cases.  This would be greatly appreciated by everyone that is a part of Hopeful Ways and the people of Nicaragua. I will have a collection box starting this week for any donations and the collection ends on May 18th.  There will also be a pizza party prize for the patrol that collects the most glasses!  Good Luck! Thanks, Jake C

Eagle Project Collection

I will be collecting over the counter medication for St Luke's Mission of Mercy at meeting on Wednesday.  The people,who benefit from St Luke's could really use your help; They sometimes end up going to the emergency room because they don't have any Tylenol or Motrin.  Besides those other items they are requesting are aspirin, cough and cold pills or syrups, lozenges, fungal creams, lice preparations, antibiotic and cortisone creams. Please remember all meds must be handled and delivered by adults.Susan Rinaldo will be taking the medications. Thank you for your help, Stephen
