Eagle project focuses on helping feed Ukrainian refugees
Submitted by Irene Gough
Acalanes senior Tyler Gough, Life Scout from BSA Troop 243 in Lafayette, is in the final stages of earning the rank of Eagle Scout. For his Eagle project, Gough plans to raise $5,000 and use the funds to pack 15,000 meals, with the help of Kids Against Hunger Bay Area, which will be sent to support Ukraine during its ongoing crisis. "The funds collected will be used to pay for the ingredients, to ensure the recipients are consuming quality food," Gough wrote on his GoFundMe page.
"Scouting has provided so many unforgettable opportunities and experiences, and I would love to be able to give back to the community by addressing the issue of world hunger. Any help you can provide means so much to me as I seek to fulfill this dream," he wrote.
Gough is also asking for help at two upcoming packing events on Feb. 26 from 12:45 to 2:15 p.m. and March 4 from 5 to 6:30 p.m., which will be when the meals are prepared. Sign-ups are free and anyone is invited to attend.
