This account was set up for our son, Peyton Murrell, who is currently a life scout in Troop 264. Here is a message from him:
Hello! I am raising money to help fund my Eagle Scout project. I am going to build an outdoor learning amphitheater at North Ridge Elementary in North Richland Hills, Texas. It will consist of 10 recycled material benches that will hold up to two classrooms at a time, a gravel walkway for easy access for walkers, strollers, and wheelchairs, and a pergola for guest speakers and presenters. Students will be able to come outside and enjoy learning at its finest: in nature. The amphitheater can be used for readers theater, guest readers, author visits, observations for science, inspirations for writing, and much much more. This is a costly project, but it is for a very worthy school and community.
The funds will be used to purchase the materials for the pergola, materials for the walkway, and purchasing the benches. If I do not get enough to buy the benches, I will purchase the materials to build them instead. I want to use recycled materials because they are better for the environment and will not cause the beneficiary any added expense over the years for upkeep.
I've added each item under the wish list in case anyone would like to see the breakdown for each part of the project. Each bench will cost $395 each, which includes the bench, the anchors, the concrete, and the shipping costs.
Any help that you might be able to provide would be greatly appreciated. I am looking forward to getting this project underway. Thank you very much for your support.
