Adam Cook Eagle Project

Hello Family and Friends,

As many of you may know, Scouting is very important to me. I have been a Scout since first grade when I started as a Tiger in Cub Scouts in 2009. After over 10 years of Scouting, I am now working on my Eagle Rank.

My Eagle Project will be building a new donation box for St. Michael Thrift Store. In addition to the donation box, I have also been asked to build shelving in the back room of the store to increase the storage capacity for donations. The beneficiary of my project is very excited to have new shelving, and especially to have a new donation box since they regularly receive almost twice the amount of donations that their current box can hold. I am hoping to begin my project in June 2020 and complete it in 3-4 weeks.

I am excited to be helping St. Michael Thrift Store. The thrift store is an important ministry of my parish, St. Michael Catholic Church in Gastonia, NC, and provides assistance for those in need in our community.

In order to make my project a reality, I am asking for the financial support of family and friends. The estimated cost of the project will be about $1000. If you are willing and able to donate to my project, I would be greatly appreciative. Any amount, even $10, would help me complete my project and ultimately earn my Eagle Rank in Scouting. More importantly, it will lead to a new, much-needed donation box for St. Michael Thrift Store.

Yours in Scouting,
