We recently received this email from Chase Kimball, updating us about his Eagle Scout Project. Thank you for sharing, Chase, we’re proud of you.
I was in contact with one of your representatives a little while ago about purchasing portal hole covers for my Eagle project. I wanted to provide an update, tell you about my project, and say thank you.
As of now, I have been recommended for the rank of Eagle and the paperwork is being done at the head Boy Scout national office. I can say without a doubt it would not have been possible without your help. The representative that I spoke with gave me multiple discounts and free shipping on my order. Without his help, it would not have been possible for me to get portal covers for each house and they would have been of a much less quality. For my project, I created a birdwalk that doubled as recreation and a conservation project. I made the trail specifically for the children of the 5200 ward at Duke hospital. That specific ward treats pediatric blood and bone marrow diseases. These children can’t go to the mall or movie theatres as their immune systems are compromised by their diseases and treatment. A common cold could be deadly. My goal was to provide them with a hobby and a form of recreation that they could enjoy. The trail consists of 32 houses in total and is accompanied with an educational map that tells what birds live along the trail and where each house is. I would not have been able to make these houses as nice and as permanent as they are without their help. I hope that they provide happiness for years to come to many children, and that was made possible through your help. I have attached some pictures of the work day and the finished houses, I hope you enjoy looking at them. Thank you again, and if you’re ever in Durham, don’t hesitate to stop by.
Here are the photos Chase shared with us. Enjoy!
