Home Depot just donated $100 towards material...
Hello, First let me introduce myself. My name is Nicholas Rubio and I am a 17 year old high school senior at Seffner Christian Academy (SCA). I am currently a Life Scout @ Troop 665 in Lithia, FL and working on the rank of Eagle. I am also the former Senior Patrol Leader for the troop and have held other various leadership positions.
Now that you know more about me, let me explain the "Why" behind my eagle scout project and its beneficiary. I have been attending SCA since the 5th grade. Everyday on my way to school, I would pass by A Kid's Place and typically see a group of kids standing on the side of the road, waiting for the bus to pick them up. Eventually that group grew to be very large and kids would just sit on the curb, waiting to go to school. Now that I am reaching the final rank of scouts and working on a service project, I decided that I would build some benches for A Kid's Place for the kids to sit when they wait for the bus in the morning. Of course, in order to build these benches, I'm going to need funds, which is why I started this funding page. I'm hoping to raise $5,000, which is more than I need to build the benches, because I'd also like to donate all the extra money to the beneficiary. This extra money will hopefully go towards building a shelter for these benches, to ensure that the kids have a suitable place to wait every morning for school.
I personally went to visit A Kid's place and got a tour of it and I absolutely love the place. The staff there are so passionate for helping the kids and it genuinely touched my heart. I'm so excited to be able to give back to them for all the hard work they do for kids in need of a home. So, I greatly appreciate all donations made, and hope I can truly make a positive impact on this place.
