Sandra Cantu Playhouse

Sandra Cantu Playhouse

From Max Marrs

My name is Max Marrs and I am a Boy Scout with Troop 537 in Tracy, CA. I am building a new playhouse dedicated to Sandra Cantu, a young girl who died in Tracy in 2009. My goal is to raise $2500 for the new playhouse.

A little about me just so you know who you are giving your money to :)

My name is Max and I am a senior in high school in Tracy, CA. I work at America's Tire and for the City of Tracy, this spring I will be playing my last season of varsity baseball for my school. I have been in Boy Scouts since I was 11 years old and before that I was in Cub Scouts. My journey through scouts has been tremendously uplifting and a blessing on my life. Scouts has given me traits that can not be taught anywhere else. In following, it has given me the tenacity and ability to persevere through any challenge set before me. My first 50 mile hike was the hardest thing I have ever had to do in my life up until that point. That trip taught me that I can do anything I set my mind to, no matter what obstacle lies in my way. Through the years I have had many amazing experiences in scouts. This program has given me opportunities that I will never find anywhere else in the world, and I am incredibly thankful for that.

This project was presented to me by Steven Abercrombie, Tracy's Dare Program Officer, and I eagerly accepted. When I heard that this playhouse was dedicated to Sandra Cantu I realized that this project means so much more. For those who don't know, Sandra Cantu was an eight year old girl who was kidnapped, rapped, and murdered by Melissa Huckaby. She was later found stuffed in a suitcase in an irrigation pond. Her heartbreaking story was felt by everyone in the community. This was a physical memorial to honor her, and it was falling apart in a school bus lot. Therefore a new playhouse will be erected in her honor and memory.

The new playhouse will be 8' x 12' big it will almost three times larger and include a porch. It will be donated to Tender Loving Care, a local children's facility here in Tracy. Pieces of the old playhouse will incorporated into the project to offer sentimental value to the new one. This new playhouse will be going to a fantastic facility and be used greatly by all the children. 

I am asking for your help so I can build this playhouse for Sandra. All those who donate will have their names represented on the new playhouse. All donations will be greatly appreciated, and each level of donations is represented by a corresponding Boy Scout rank.
