Eagle Service Project Benefits GG's Closet
For Nick Roach of Boy Scout Troop 236, scouting has taught him the importance of working together to achieve common and life-changing goals. When deciding on an Eagle Scout Service Project, Nick wanted to be involved in a project that allowed an opportunity for individuals to start a new chapter in their lives. StepUp Ministry and GG's Closet fit perfectly with the ideals that he has learned from being a Boy Scout. Nick visited GG's Closet to determine what project would best serve its needs, and discovered a great need for a mobile storage/shelving unit for shoes and pants as well as the need for a clothing drive for men’s belts and other interview appropriate clothing.
As part of the Leadership Project, Nick oversaw the volunteers and the construction of the two shelving units. He also organized a clothing drive that collected among other items: 125 belts, 25 dress shirts, 20 suits, and a cash donation. As a result, GG's Closet received much needed storage units used to organize and display its shoes and pants. Additionally, GG's Closet received numerous men's suits, dress shirts and pants that will be used to dress the Employment Program participants. Nick’s insight, leadership and hard work greatly benefitted GG's Closet and the Employment Program participants.
