Daniel's Eagle Scout Project

$720 of $1,800 goal

Raised by 19 people in 33 months
My name is Daniel Knorr, and I am a Boy Scout from Troop 88 in Fairfield, Connecticut. To reach the rank of Eagle Scout, one must organize and carry out a service project that benefits an organization other than Scouting. I have the privilege of working with the Norma F. Pfriem Urban Outreach Initiative. The group operates out of the United Congregational Church in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and serves meals to those in need, functions as a clothing closet, and even as an overflow shelter during the winter months.

With so many functions, the space the group has must be utilized in the most efficient way possible. Currently, the storage of their clothing donations limits their capacity to serve as an overflow shelter, as they have the cots, but lack the floor space.

My goal is to build multiple high-strength rolling shelves that can be used to store the closet items in a way that uses less floor space and can be rolled into different spaces as the group’s functions require.  

Please lend your support to a fantastic organization that truly does amazing work and help me make a difference in one of Connecticut’s neediest communities.

Today I had the amazing opportunity to speak during this morning’s service at the United Congregational Church, home of the Norma F. Pfriem Urban Outreach Initiative. It was a great chance to spread the word about the project throughout the congregation. I also then delivered my prototype shelf so it could be given a test run at next week's Hope Shop, a place where those in need can shop with dignity for anything they might need.

My thanks go to the most recent donors:

Karen Benjamin
Cecilia Fung
Sandy Alvarez
Selina Strong
Tracey Rosato
Joi Honer

Thank you for helping to make this project a success!

Just volunteered for a few hours at the initiative for a clothes donation sorting day. Shopping days for those in need and sorting days occur on alternating Sundays from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Any help is greatly appreciated! As you can see from the attached picture, the storage situation is a bit hectic at the moment, but with your help, I can change that!

My thanks go to all those who have contributed so far and I hope many more will choose to help out this amazing organization.
