Dear Troop 235.
I am reaching out to ask for your support in my Eagle Scout project through donations. For my project, I will be giving back to my elementary school by building four new raised planter boxes for the schools garden program so that kids can learn about planting and growing plants and food. I will be using the high quality materials necessary like redwood to ensure the safety and long lasting of the four new planter boxes. If you are interested in donating to support my Eagle Project, please use the GoFundMe link below. A work day will be scheduled soon.
Yours in Scouting,
Pearce W.
