GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ (September 17, 2023)(CNBNews)--Michael Kazmar III, a Gloucester City resident, is currently working on a project to achieve his Eagle Scout rank this fall. The Boy Scouts of America consider the Eagle Scout rank as the highest and most distinguished achievement for a Scout. This title is held with immense respect and carries significant meaning in Scouting, school, business, and the community. To gain the Eagle rank, a Scout must earn at least 21 merit badges, exhibit leadership skills, demonstrate outdoor skills, lead by example according to the Scout Oath and Law, and complete a comprehensive community service project.
A junior at Gloucester High School, Michael has chosen The Episcopal Church Of The Ascension on Sussex Street as the location for his Eagle Scout project. He plans to organize a town-wide food drive and construct ten sets of 5-6-tier shelving to expand the Gloucester City Helping Hands food pantry into two additional rooms within the former parsonage. Additionally, Michael and his team will replace the felt padding on the pew kneelers in the sanctuary with new rubber pads.
This Eagle Scout project will likely be the first of its kind in Gloucester City in over 25 years!
To expand the Helping Hands food pantry and install new shelving, Michael requires funds. Would you consider making a donation to help pay for this valuable community project?
Your donation will serve a dual purpose: it will help Michael achieve his Eagle Scout rank, and it will benefit a religious institution and the Gloucester City community.
The majority of funds raised will be spent within Gloucester City, particularly at Carr's Hardware (with their support) and local eateries. Michael plans to provide breakfast and lunch for all volunteers on two working Saturdays, November 4th and November 11th.
Michael appreciates all donations!
