The Food Bank will be the beneficiary of a new counter and desk space very soon as it is the Eagle Scout Project of Kevin Engstrom from Seymour’s Boy Scout Troop 11. Kevin began his fundraising efforts during this past summer with presentations at Trinity Episcopal Church, the Charter Organization of Troop 11, and at St. Thomas the Apostle Church in Oxford. The Seymour Pumpkin Festival Committee also donated the proceeds from a spring plant sale fundraiser to help Kevin defray the costs of materials. He also received gift cards and donated plywood from area hardware stores to help with the construction.
With help from his grandfather and other Troop 11 scouts, the pieces have been cut, nailed and primed. The project is on track to be completed by mid-November.
Thank you to all who have donated funds and time to help Kevin with his project. It is all appreciated!
